AIUI, the ICNCP would operate under the BioCode in the same way as it
operates under the ICBN. It is indeed entirely separate, for instance in not
using types but standard specimens. Also, priority is kept within bounds.

However, speaking about forgetting Codes, it is possible for separate Codes
to operate under the aegis of the ICNCP, and there is at least one such
Code, for cultivated orchids.
