Paratypothorac[...]ini was Re: Chromogisaurus novasi, new guaibasaurid (basal sauropodomorph)

I named the clade Paratypothoracisini in 2007
The only way I can see that this incorrectly formed name could be valid
in the first place is Article 29.5:
"Maintenance of current spellings. If a spelling of a family-group name
was not formed in accordance with Article 29.3 but is in prevailing
usage, that spelling is to be maintained, whether or not it is the
original spelling and whether or not its derivation from the name of the
type genus is in accordance with the grammatical procedures in Articles
29.3.1 <page.jsp?nfv=&article=29#3.1> and 29.3.2
Is it "in prevailing usage"? How often has it been used at all?
I don't think the ICZN defines "prevailing usage" anywhere. It's not in
the glossary either.
