I completely agree! I just wanted to make sure people were not mis-quoting
or mis-representing the zoological Code. I wrote the bulk of the note this
morning (before your post referencing Art. 57.8.1), then sent it when I got
to work -- but before I saw your aforementioned Post citing Art. 57.8.1.
Basically, by the time I sent my message, you had already made the point I
was trying to make. So I think we're in complete agreement.

Again, I agree completely!
