Sinosauropteryx prima proper?

   Since George announced that a paper *has* been published on
Sinosauropteryx, a thought suddenly crossed my mind (I know, it scared me,
too):  does this mean that Sinosauropteryx prima is the proper name of the
animal, and a more "suitable" name cannot be applied to it?
