Jack Longino describes putting in-course morphotype descriptions etc.
on the Web, and concludes:

>Using this approach, it becomes essential that Web publication not be
>viewed as official taxonomic publication.

Why should the requirements of one practice pre-empt other practices?
Why not expand the convention whereby an author may explicitly state
that such-and-such a publication is not a formal taxonomic statement?
