Exoplanet Discoveries and Updates

Er. Actually we have:

a) An entire page devoted to super-terrestrial worlds that dates back to 2011 - LINK

b) Panthalassa (LINK), which is a pretty wet place (article written in 2008) and IIRC is also an example of the PanThalassic Type world - LINK (article written in 2008).

Is there something distinctly different about super-Earths and water worlds that clearly makes them not examples of what is described above? At the least, I think it's an oversimplification (if not flat out incorrect) to say we have nothing like these in the setting.

I'm less sure about sub-Neptunes, being in the setting earlier - that would be a Steve question.
