Deifying the Dead and Ancestor Worship

I would be interested in hearing opinions on how the following terms might be defined:

Deifying the Dead
Ancestor Worship
Honoring the Ancestors

It seems to me that sometimes the line between these gets blurred.

Also, what are some thoughts on adding the dead to your altar who were not ancestors or someone you knew personally. Say a historical figure or social rights leader for instance - someone like Gandhi or Mother Teresa for example, or do you think that would be unwise?
