Subject: Re: One more Recommendation?
Such a recommendation would have to specify that the naming forming the root is a preexisting name. >>> David Marjanovic <firstname.lastname@example.org> - 12/3/03 4:50 PM >>> I forgot: The following should be added to the Recommendation (or form one of its own, whatever): >> Names formed by adding a prefix to another name should only be defined if the latter is already an established name. << So no Eupelycosauria when there is no Pelycosauria, and no Eureptilia when there is no Reptilia. (Currently Eureptilia, Reptilia, and Eupelycosauria have phylogenetic definitions, while Pelycosauria has none.)
