If you'll forgive me, this scenario does not seem very likely to occur.  If it
did and there was no merit to the new ranks, the rest of us would do to the party
responsible what we did to Rafinesque, E. L. Greene, et al.: consign them to
perpetual synonymy.

In defense of E.L. Greene, many of his taxa are still "good" species and some
that were consigned to synonymy have been "resurrected."
