Description

The type designation record itself stays in the database.

This needs some discussion:

  • if removing a type designation from a specimen should it be removed from the name too? My opinion: yes, or even better, let the user decide via dialog.
  • if referenced by multiple names should it be deleted anyway? - My opinion: no. even better, ask the user if it should be removed from all other names (and listing the names)

As a type designation must be possible without defining a concrete specimen (e.g. for "not designated") we can not have an orphan removal solution.

Note:
We should do the same if a name or a specimen is fully deleted. The delete algorithms should be checked if they do so.
