Thanks a lot for the link -- I think you have overlooked Art. 29.5,
according to which Ceratopsidae is to be maintained because it "is in
prevailing usage".

True dat.

I get about 14k Ghits for "Ceratopsidae" and about 1k Ghits for
"Ceratopidae", so while usage isn't consisent, the spelling with the
's' is easily the commoner one.
