I was just proposing an idea for PhyloCode. Now I thanks to your emai=
l think that PhyloCode should just try to be compatible with any spec=
ies definition as you can't I see get everyone on the same bandwagon =
anyhow. Some just will not accept the definition of a species given b=
y another. Species should be something that is outside of PhyloCode t=
echnically and if you have a definition of a species and you want to =
make it compatible with Phylocode you should have rules for your defi=
nition and so should others. At worst you would have more names for t=
he same thing.
