Yes -- exactly.  Isn't that what the original question from Donat was about?
Except I think "NAME sensu PERSON" is short-hand for the more explicit "NAME
sensu REFERENCE"

Berendsohn was talking about "potential taxa" when he proposed "sec.", so
I'm pretty sure that he was talking about nomenclature (not taxonomy).
