Certain components of the ZooBank back-end database are immutable.

The PDF was not published in the meaning of Article 8 of the Amendment prior
to September 4th, because prior to September 4th there was no indication of
the intended Archive in ZooBank.  The PDF could have been considered as
published after September 4th, but the date of publication for purposes of
priority would be applied to the paper edition, numerous copies of which
were simultaneously obtainable in March.
