Dear Dr. Wagner and all,

  I think any uninomial can be converted from traditional nomenclature into
phylogenetic nomenclature, although clade names are not supposed to be based
on specific epithets (Art. 10). Binomials (e.g., species names) are not
covered. Phil C. and Kevin deQ correct me if I'm wrong.
