Cenotaphs

While walking around Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Hollywood over the HOT weekend, I came across a cenotaph of a Hattie McDaniel, famous for her role as Mammy in Gone with the Wind. I wanted to waymark it into grave of a famous person, but she is not buried there. So, it had me thinking. What if there was a category for cenotaphs. And if so, should it be selective to only be "cenotaphs of a famous person"? I'm curious to know what your thoughts are. Feel free to discuss and let me know.

On a side note, I also came across a cenotaph of Toto from the Wizard of Oz, whose real name was Terry. She was buried on ranch outside LA and due to rapid economic expansion of the region, her grave was destroyed during the construction of a freeway.
