Another approach (I think this is different to what David Wright suggested)
would be to decouple the genus-name (the first term of a Linnean binomen)
from membership in a taxon designated by that name.  Allow the existing
names, with their rich texture of associations, to continue to exist, but
cease to require the name to serve a classificational function.
