[Taxacom] New genus name in title

If the titles and/or abstracts aren't published in a Code compliant way, then there is no problem anyway. So simply having them on databases is neither here nor there. They would have to be either printed in numerous identical hard copies, or published electronically with eveidence of ZooBank preregistration. Really, this whole thing is a non-issue ...

 So the message I get from all of
 this is to check with a prospective
 journal
 as to whether it releases titles and abstracts to databases
 other
 sources prior to actual publication.
 If they do not then there would seem
 to be
 no substantial threat, at least for titles (my main
 concern).
