There are some systematists who view the ICZN rule about paper-only
publishing as anachronistic and are willing to flaunt the rule as a
"test-case" so to speak.  Some have already done so.

If such authors are happy to have their work ignored (or even pirated
without acknowledgement), then they are free to follow this course. I
hardly see it as a "test-case", however - such 'papers' effectively do
not exist for nomenclatural purposes.
