I would suggest that we organize this page with a general introduction, then a section on each of the canonical Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), and then a final section on noncanonical Gospels.

Nothing personal to your additions, but the Gospels were in common usage well before Irenaeus. The Four Winds is also misunderstood. He didn't make it four because of the winds, he drew a comparison between the number of Gospels that there were and the four winds; there is a big difference. Also, while the Four Gospels are not completely chronological, they follow an overall chronological pattern as seen when they are cross referenced against each other. Gospels are also narrative stories. The meaning was recreated to allow works that don't fit that mold to still be called Gospels (I.E. Phillip).
