Or would the lawyers come out of the woodwork pronto?

Any such lawyers could simply go cheney themselves (or each other if they prefer). And so, BTW, can whoever was the environment minister of Turkey in 2005 (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/4328285.stm). The International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (http://www.iczn.org/iczn/index.jsp) doesn't contain any such restrictions. If you don't like a validly published name, too bad for you.

(...Furthermore, an anonymous BBC journalist can go cheney themself for capitalizing species and subspecies names. But I digress.)

Oh, BTW: ther_OOOOO_pod.
