What about Pluto?
Eventually, we'll be able to use mass drivers to regularize its orbit and thus make it a planet again as it will have a distinct orbit which it has cleared of other bodies.
What about its moons? They are so large compared to Pluto that they all have strong gravity pulls on each other.

IIRC, only Charon is large compared to Pluto, and Charon is tiny overall.

Use mass drivers to move Charon closer and the center of mass between Charon and Pluto will be back under Pluto's surface so that no longer is an issue.

But I thought Charon was in fact a Mass relay....

Wait, am I mixing franchises? :S

Mondas will be back in it's own time.
To paraphrase Bob Geldof, I don't like Mondas.
