This is a good point! One has to know that before 7.00 AM GMT, 4 Sep 2012, it was not possible to register a publication in compliance with the amendment, but this is not obvious from ZooBank records!
Also, an incorrectly registered publication *could be* corrected and backdated by ZooBank, as far as we know!
It would have been better (though still imperfect) to have a Wikimedia style edit history of records, so we could see who did what when ...

It wouldn't be technically possible if the content of the entries in 
ZooBank was immutable. But this doesn't seem to be the case...



Registered on 6 March according to ZooBank, published on 9 March 2012 
according to the pdf, the registration number is in the pdf, AND the 
entry in ZooBank DOES include an Archive and an ISSN.

Why is the pdf not published in the meaning of Article 8 of the Amendment ?
