endings of species names be amended?

Kevin de Queiroz is preparing a big paper about species and subspecies under
Phylocode... W4tP. :-)

volume published when PhyloCode goes into effect (whenever 200n is!), it
might be somewhat dangerous to put many important taxonomic decisions into
the hands of a select few.

These select few will, however, only deal with important, frequently used
names of big clades (or work forever), and won't be concerned with alpha
taxonomy.
