Really? That's A Real Word?

Just to be sure, I looked up the word superfluity. (Perhaps because I had just finished reading the Science section of the NYT, it kept looking like superfluidity to me.) I did confirm that it mean what I thought it meant -- in the context in which it appeared, an excess (to the point of being superfluous) -- but ugh, Princeton's WordNet offers overplus as a synonym.
