Looking back at some posts, I think I should clarify that I would NOT support retaining the old name for one of the split species in all cases. For example, new names for Alder and Willow Flycatchers was clearly the correct decision because of their broadly overlapping ranges and relatively similar range and population sizes. Each case needs to be judged on it own merits and the cost and benefits of each option weighed. But no split can be made without causing some confusion along the way...
