I would not put research and big names into categories apart from ethos, pathos, and logos. Most claims to authority are logical appeals or ethical appeals. While I understand that they add concreteness, it makes it harder to understand the relationship between rhetorical authority and outside sources.
It might be useful to import some of the Toulmin model of argument to make the relationships between claims and data more apparent.
