naming nodes



George,
I'm afraid you are probably right. Wherever there is a node, some cladist will name it sooner or later (and probably sooner if they fear someone else will beat them to it).
By the way, David, in that paper in January 2001, did they only give informal names to the clades: australosphenidan clade and boreosphenidan clade. Did they resist the temptation to formally name them? I hope so (that's how it should be). But even if they didn't, someone will eventually "formally" name and define them. I've only read the abstract, so not sure if they did it formally or not.
