John,
The same rules apply to genera and subfamilies and families.
Thus the first suprageneric usage will establish the senior homonym
for Chilodontidae.  The ICZN rules stop at the family level.

For this reason, the names used by researchers establish the suprafamilial
names.  See Discussions for Embioptera and Embiidina.  The former is
well entrenched, but E.S. Ross prefers Embiidina.  Go figure.
