Discussions pending:

POV:

It has been suggested that the Name section should be the first section on a page.
It would make some sense, IMHO. 

Kempm:

For most organisms the term type-locality can be used. 
For Bacteria and Archaea, I'd like to use type-strain. A chemical formulae that is widely used and that can be found in publications.
For lichenous organisms, I'd like to use the term Host-substratum/Locality, as I'm using on many Fungi pages. 
Some Fungi can be determined on the host they are feeding on. And Ascomycetes taxonomy relies heavily on this.

Will there be more exceptions?

Kempm:

If the name section describes a taxon above species level for example Genus-level, add the term type species. 
This is the specimen on which the genus is based on. 
For Familia, use type genus etc.

Kempm:

I have been contributing a bit different, and added the synonyms section as a lvl 2 (main) section. 
Also I added information like homotypic synonyms, basionym, competing synonym, and non-competing synonym.

POV:

It has been suggested to rename this section to Interwiki.

KempmPOV:

The name Interwiki makes more sense to me, since it describes better what it is.
Vernacular names is not just a list of names, but a list of links to the right (existant) pages?
