[Taxacom] Use of "nomen invalidum" versus "nomen nudum" in botany

The Glossary in the ICNafp has a subtitle 
"Definitions of terms used in this Code"; and there is no
reason to include "nomen invalidum" as that is not a term
that is used in the ICNafp...

The term can be found elsewhere, here and there, for instance
in the Terms used in bionomenclature by Hawksworth,
where it it marked as being "colloquial".
