Sorry Donat,

don't take your dreams for reality, that will be now
"In order to be validly published, a name of a new taxon [...] must be  
accompanied by a Latin or English description or diagnosis"
thus latin is still there, it is not replaced, you'll just have the  
opportunity to use your mother's tongue also.

Secondly, even if that will be endorsed next week at IBC, you will be  
allow to publish a new botanical taxa with an english-only description  
or diagnosis only on the 1st of january 2012, not next month. Wait a  
bit more...
