As I have said before, you are WAY off base here. Zhi-Qiang made excellent contributions to the discussion on the e-publication amendment, just as many other Commissioners and non-Commissioners did. I don't recall ANY instance where his input in any way attempted to influence the direction of the final wording of the Amendment in a way that would favor "major commercial publishers". We all share the same goal: nomenclatural stability. The real problem is that there are different ways to interpret "stability".
