In addition to the problem of intentional rogue taxonomy, e-only makes 
accidental rogue taxonomy much easier, e.g. putting online something 
that is unpublished such as a dissertation; making and perpetuating of 
erroneous names; taxonomic changes occuring in poorly documented 
updates; etc.  We have these sorts of problems already in print; e-only 
simply allows the problem to be much bigger.
