Occasionally, an author may wish to convey a particular emphasis by assigning a name which departs from standard priority considerations. So long as this is adequately explained and appropriate consequences (e.g., for numbering) accepted and logically treated so as to preserve freedom from error and ambiguity, this set of procedures may still be applicable. However, names so generated are not recommended for general use.
