Subject: Art. 17.1

After considering the recent discussion of Art. 17.1 on this=20
listserv, Kevin and I are going to propose that the first sentence of=
this rule be reworded along the lines suggested by Guy Davies:

"In order to be established, a clade name must be a single word=20
composed of more than one letter and consist exclusively of letters=
of the Latin alphabet as used in contemporary English, which is taken=
to include the 26 letters a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h, i, j, k, l, m, n,=
o, p, q, r, s, t, u, v, w, x, y, and z, even though some of these=
letters are rare or absent in classical Latin."
