In the (proposed) amended Code, a requirement to register a new e-only name is spelled out in article 10.9, and a requirement to archive e-only works is spelled out in article 8.5.3. In my view these are important new features of the Code.

Somewhere between the prokaryote model (one official outlet) and Stephen Thorpe's 'no restrictions' model is the suggested whitelist of taxonomic journals.
