Documented in name.balance

#' Name a balance (coordinate) based on taxonomy
#' For a given ILR balance (coordinate) assigns a name to the balance based on a
#' provided taxonomy table. This is useful for interpretation of the balances.
#' @param tr an object of class \code{'phylo'}
#' @param tax a matrix/data.frame of taxonomy, rownames should correspond to \code{tr$tip.labels}
#' columns should be taxonomic levels (named) with increasing taxonomic resolution from left to right
#' (e.g., Phylum to the left of Genus).
#' @param coord the name of a balance/internal node on the tree (given as a string)
#' @param method currently only \code{'voting'} implemented. See Details.
#' @param thresh threshold for assignment of taxonomy to a given part of a balance
#' (must be greater than 0.5 if \code{method='voting'}; see details).
#' @param return.votes whether voting results by taxonomic level should be shown for \code{coord}. Note: this is helpful when
#' \code{name.balance} does not return a clear winner, as may be the case when a given \code{coord} represents more than one
#' taxonomic lineage. votes are returned as a list indexed by \code{colnames(tax)} Options include:
#' \describe{
#' \item{\code{NULL}}{(default) only returns the combined consensus name of the balance}
#' \item{\code{'up'}}{adds tallied votes for the 'up' node to the output list}
#' \item{\code{'down'}}{adds tallied votes for the 'down'node to the output list}
#' \item{\code{'self'}}{adds tallied votes for \code{coord} to the output list}
#' }
#' @return If \code{return.votes=NULL} returns a string of the form (ex. 'Genus_Bacteroides/Phylum_Firmicutes'). Otherwise returns
#' a list with the above string as 'name', see Arguments for \code{show.votes} for other optional returned items.
#' @details A bit of terminology:
#' \describe{
#' \item{coord}{this is the same as the names of the balances which should be the same as the names of the internal nodes of \code{tr}}
#' \item{'up'}{this is the child node of \code{coord} that is represented in the numerator of the \code{coord} balance.}
#' \item{'down'}{this is the child node of \code{coord} that is represented in the denominator of the \code{coord} balance}
#' }
#' The method \code{'voting'} assigns the name of the each part of a balance (e.g., numerator and denominator / each
#' child of \code{coord}) as follows:
#' \enumerate{
#' \item First Subset \code{tax} to contain only descendent tips of the given child of \code{coord}
#' \item Second At the finest taxonomic (farthest right of \code{tax}) see if any one taxonomic label
#' is present at or above \code{thresh}. If yes output that taxonomic label (at that taxonomic level) as the label
#' for that child of \code{coord}. If no then move to coarser taxonomic level (leftward) and repeat.
