Shimano heirachy?

I've often wondered what the ladder of best to worst(?) Shimano components would look like.
For road stuff it would seem as far as price goes:
1.Dura Ace
2.Ultegra
Then what?

And for off road components
1.XTR
2.XT

Where does stuff like 105,Deore,Exage,Alivio,R600,LX,Tiagra,Sora,RSX,Nexave,Nexus,Saint ,and others fit??

Then Deore is used at least 3 different ways.
I have seen Deore XT, Deore LX and simply Deore branded items? What's the deal with that??
