    SDOs (Scattered Disc Objects) [like Eris @ around 97AUs] should be wedged between KBOs and OCOs.

    Beyond OCOs (which, as a group, have a radius of almost a light year, I think), you get to interstellar space.

    Yeah, I was once a wannabe astronomer.

      Realistically I don't think your proposal has much of a chance. And it seems that "Dwarf double planet" is what Pluto is and will remain. It's been fun though.
