Regarding the removal of Heterosexual Life-Partners: They may not have the hots for each other, but the following exchange from Ch 18 of When the Tide Rises suggests they're not straight, either:

"That's right, Leary," Bill LaPlant said. "And let me tell you, if Platt and his pansies think they can take things over now we've got guns, we'll teach him different!"
[...]
Dasi and Barnes stood against the wall on either side of Adele; they grinned at one another over her head. There was no need to make a point of it, but either man could've convinced the Granger that who you screw has nothing to do with how well you fight.

I must respectfully disagree with your assessment. The text you cite is not terribly conclusive one way or the other. But more important, the Heterosexual Life-Partners entry specifically states that the two persons don't actually have to be straight, they're just not romantically linked. In essence, it's a variation of Platonic Life Partners where the two persons are of the same gender.

Whoops, missed the part about not necessarily having to be straight. My mistake.
