[Taxacom] Animalia or Metazoa?

Should the clade (kingdom) that results from the subtraction of the  
Protozoa from the old "Animalia" still be called Animalia, or Metazoa?  
There is no Code to govern this. Protistologists all seem to opt for  
Metazoa, but zoologists and general public seem not to want to let go  
of Animalia. Is there any literature discussing this issue? Anybody  
got an opinion?
