De Queiroz's (2000) distinction between Linnaeus's nomenclature and his taxonomy as "a Linnaean system" and "the Linnaean system" is inadequate because it is homonymic, and all good nomenclators, be they traditionalists or phylogenetic, should reject homonyms.
An appropriate analogy here is that someone wanting to build a house will be able to do so with greater ease on an undeveloped lot (the lot that phylogenetic nomenclators are currently working on) than a developed lot (the lot that traditional nomenclators must work on).
