BTW Thomas, what about this fairly common scenario:
A journal does have a record on ZooBank with an intended archive, but an author creates a duplicate record for the journal, without an intended archive, and preregisters a publication under the duplicate journal record (erroneously thinking that the journal has to be registered again anew each time a publication is registered!)

Unfortunately, it is more
complicated than that.
The original work was
published e-only and without evidence in the work itself of
registration in ZooBank.
The journal PLOS
BIOLOGY does not provide an intended archive under its
registration in ZooBank.
work cannot be regarded as published for the purposes of
zoological nomenclature in its electronic form.
Thus, unless there is a printed version of the
work, the correction does not point to a published work.
Even the correction itself does not comply with
the ICZN in its electronic form.
The placozoan names therefore remain
is aware of the problems associated with such published but
Until a solution has
been implemented, it is strongly recommended to consult with
the Commission before attempting to 'resurrect'
names and nomenclatural acts.

completeness, this is to note that the authors of Eitel et
(2018) have now published a correction
that includes the relevant zoobank LSIDs to make the names
mentioned above available.

Stephen, that does indeed appear
be the case. I have just sent an email to the lead author
