Actually this is not the fault of the AHS either.  The International Code of 
Nomenclature for Cultivated Plants as amended in 1995 does not recognize the 
web as a means of "publication" for the purpose of introduction of new 
registrations.  This Code is passed by UNESCO a subcommittee of the U.N. from 
which the registration authority for all genus derives.  The Code is then 
what the respective International Registration Authorities are required to 
use in registering plants within the genus for which they have authority.

In the future I too hope they amend the code to accept the web as a means of 
publication.  Until then it is not the AHS's fault, nor any other plant 
International Registration Authority.  If you want I will bring a copy of the 
code to Hosta In Focus for you to look at.
