Nope, still won't work:

_Sinornithosaurus millenii_ is the type species of _Sinornithosaurus_; if
_S. millenii_ is a junior synonym of another species, and said species
belongs to another genus, then there is no more _Sinornithosaurus_.  If
there is no more _Sinornithosaurus_, you can't name a new species
_Sinornithosaurus milleNNii_.

Hope this helps.

Speaking of _Sinornithosaurus_, as Judy Horan pointed out, a webcast of
today's 10:30 am (Eastern time) press conference at National Geographic can
