Subject: reply to David M on species

The PhyloCode does actually provide possibilities for naming clades without
naming species. Check Article 11.1- 11.5 on these issues. You may use
species as specifiers, but you may also use type or non-type specimens. If
types then you do not actually make any explicit, direct statements about
species, and if non-types you make none at all!
