Holotype fragment (botany)

The proposals on electronic publishing were clobbered at the Vienna
botanical nomenclatural meetings, I hear, and probably won't be proposed
again by a special committee, anyway, as in the last two congresses, for a
long time (thus a moratorium).

Given that electronic publication is now becoming an expected adjunct to
hardcopy publication, I think a natural evolution towards publication of new
names solely electronically is in progress, and we need only wait a few
years until scientific journals phase out their hardcopy.

Does that include the provisions on electronic publishing?
