Also, in the category of evidence, I draw the reader's attention to this previous post (by none other than Frank Krell) on Taxacom (Sep 12, 2012): 


[Quote]I pleaded to have this [definition of "preliminary version"] clarified in the the Amendment but this was considered unnecessary for the time being - the beauty of committee work.[unquote]

Call me a "conspiracy theorist", but to me this clearly indicates dissent within the ranks of the ICZN, with recommendations from within for the greater good being ignored/suppressed! Note that Zootaxa does not publish preliminary versions, so no definition is needed!
