Sorry, I didn't express myself clearly. What I meant was that within the
text for the BioCode we had to reserve special sections for ichnotaxa and
cultivated plants. The "old/Special Codes" still dealt with the names
created before the BioCode would become active. However, that is the
BioCode model, which is in published form. Perhaps you meant something
slightly different, which would not be 100% what the BioCode contains, but
like organisms codes also evolve. The important point is to make sure we
are talking about the same details. What you propose was not in the
BioCode, but is another suggestion, which can also be taken into
