Prog RELATED IS NOT PROG.
Your grasp of this concept appears to be limited and/or somewhat selective.
The question needs to be asked :  whilst I am pleased to have many of these 'Prog Related' entries here at P.A. I wonder why they are included here at all if they are 'NOT PROG' ???  If they cross over into Prog territories occasionally then they should be in 'Cross Over'.........
Let's start up the 'Prog Related Archives' and include 'Buggles'............(whom I find more related to Prog than many 'Prog Related' artists........Confused)

They're here because they are:

Influential to or have been influenced by Progressive Rock
Considered to have facilitated the development of Progressive Rock in their locale
Considered to reflect some/many of the stylistic elements and the erstwhile zeitgeist from which Progressive Rock emerged.

These are of course very broad parameters as this isn't an exact science but it's all there in the published definition on PA which I think ain't bad. No-one pretends that any of the artists in Prog Related are Prog. They're not. They're related to Prog.

By way of contrast Crossover Prog artists are deemed 100% Prog but their music contains elements we would ordinarily expect to find in more mainstream pop/rock idioms e.g. shorter more concise song structures, classical, jazz and folk affectations, a greater focus on repeated melodic hooks etc. They don't crossover into Prog, they crossover from Prog. Similarly, a very useful definition is provided on PA which should be of particular value to Prog Reviewers.
