Sure they wrote songs together but it's not like Pink Floyd relied on them working together. They were quite capable of knocking out stuff on their own or with the rest of the band collaborating. It's not like they're like the rest of the bands listed who pretty much had 2 members writing together virtually all the material.
Do Lennon/McCartney fit? Only in the very beginning did they write songs together. The vast majority of their material was written separately...Lennon wrote some of the songs by himself, McCartney wrote some of the songs by himself.

Does "team" mean working together, or just all the song-writing work concentrated on two people?

Are you serious? Since when has a drummer made an appreciable contribution to songwriting? And Marley/Tosh were pretty much working against each other, and the only album that their contributions coincided was Catch a Fire. These are the best songwriting teams, not "people who happened to be in the same band at the same time."
