Conversely, even a primary junior homonym can still be available, if it 
fulfills conditions of either Article 23.9.5 or Article 57.2; you have 
to CHECK before you use a replacement. There are FAR too many people who 
automatically replace primary homonyms, even though this practice goes 
against the Code.
