In his emil to birding-aus on 9 October, 2000, Andrew Stafford suggested
that the Schodde and Mason splits and lumps will not become "official"
unless they are adopted by the new edition of Christidis and Boles
(which I understand is due out some time in 2001).

On the other hand, the advance publicity for Volume 5 of HANZAB
indicates that the editors have accepted at least some of the splits, eg
by treating the Short-tailed and Kalkadoon Grasswrens as separate

Does anyone know how the editors arrived at their decision?
