The lockdown would be only for very specific resources; they are the 
verbatim text of the original publication of a taxon. The only need for 
these to be changed is when they are not verbatim. Consequently, they 
are perfect or they are useless for scientific reasons. At this moment 
in time there are none on any wikipedia.

This is an example of  such a text: it was published in Succulenta in 
1971 - 50(2) a Dutch magazine on succulents. Hence the second part in 
Dutch. The publication is valid for it is in Latin.
