Yep, Paul, you are one of the few who understands the problems here. That summary is right on the mark.

 In the example given by
 Richard Pyle I have no doubt
 publication only occurs with the paper version.
 Art. 8.5 presents requirements for publication,
 8.5.3 requires that at the moment of
 publication it 
 must be registered, with the
 requirements of,, and having been met. Any attempt to 
 read it differently pretty much negates the
 whole idea
 of having a Code in the first
 As to the paper that
 started this thread, the important
 that remains is indeed the question of what is 
 going to be archived, in the line of
 Is this going 
 to be the work that made the
 nomenclatural act available,
 or is it going
 to be something that for the purposes of
 publisher is the same ...
 The argument that no serious publisher would
 alter the
 contents of a work is not all that
 helpful. Is every user 
 of a name going to
 have to decide "Oh, this name was 
 published by a serious publisher, so I am not going 
 to take it into account"; this sounds like
 a sure way to 
 create chaos.
