Taxoboxes are a standard part of every WikiProject Tree of Life article. The
only time there are breaks in the navigation are when an intermediate article
does not yet exist for that taxon. 

But your example already exists. Start at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eukaryote and work your way down. 

As time passes there will be few and fewer breaks until all taxa are covered
(hopefully every species known to science will also be covered). 

There could also be a category for each taxon, but that needs to be worked out
