[tdwg-content] New term needs resolution: yearOfPublication

The intention was for use specifically with a taxon name, i.e. not a generic term.
Personally I think it would be better to be specific to a taxon name object, otherwise it has less meaning. But I'm not sure.
yearOfPublication is just what we call it here at Landcare, perhaps there is a better term, but I think if you have applied yearOfPublication to a taxon name object, then it seems fairly obvious that this is the year of publication of the taxon name - no?

yearOfPublication is a very general term name, one I didn't
immediately connect to the publication year of a scientific name. Is
this intentional (in other words, can it be used for the
yearOfPublication of other things?) or should the name be more
