> I can't remember where, maybe in one of Rich's examples, I thought I saw the basisOfRecord for a taxonName designated as: "NomenclaturalAct".  I thought that was both correct and precise.  Similarly, I think the basis of a taxon record should be a "TaxonomicAct", i.e., a published description or reclassification.

I would favor it, because keeping recordClass versus resource type
better separated. "NomenclaturalAct",  "TaxonomicAct" would be
dcterms:type =event, for unpublished acts or dcterms:type=text for
published acts. In fact in this case, the dcterms:type would no longer
be redundant.
