To some extent, this is analogous to the clash between supporters and
detractors of the Phylocode and similar efforts.  To what extent should
classifications and nomenclature tell us details of the phylogeny (or other
features), versus being a more general directive for reference to taxa,
leaving the detail in specific publications?
