I give up. Mary Barkworth and Curtis Clarke are both right. Conservation
and rejection of types is about both taxonomy and nomenclature . . .
and, above all, precise argumentation. I wonder what "side" I would be
on if I really, really cared about Acacia.

It would seem to me that conservation and rejection of types is almsot
always about circumscription, which is taxonomy.
