Francisco,
I don't think it is I who 'interpret the Code too strictly literally". My view is that there is enough "wiggle room" in who counts as an author of a work to avoid 
the "problems with authors of taxa" which prompted this thread. The authors of a new taxon should be taken to be as stated in the work. Anything else is just creating pointless complications which detract from the science and give the science of taxonomy a bad name.
