PhyloCode names

Just a wild thought concerning names which are valid and legitimate under both the PhyloCode and ICBN

- I hope the PhyloCode is phrased thus that this does not happen?
- should this be a real danger how about requiring that PhyloCode names are published in a restricted number of journals (say "Phylon" and the like) and listing these journals as "opera rejicienda" in the ICBN?
- alternatively: how about reinstating the provisions about registration in the ICBN and then not register PhyloCode names?

I assume the ICZN allows something similar
