I've been wondering the same thing.  So far I've learned: 
... For Arabidopsis, the nomenclature rules (listed below) and an interesting 
bio.net discussion that led up to the adoption of these rules can be found
using the gopher path: 

     Arabidopsis Research companion, Mass Gen Hospital/Harvard/
            Arabidopsis Information (thale cress)/
                 Arabidopsis BioSci Electronic conference (arab-gen) <?>
        	     (I searched for "dominance"  or "nomenclature")

... The yeast rules for genetic nomenclature are described in:

     The Molecular Biology of the Yeast Saccharomyces, Life Cycle and 
Inheritance.  eds. Strathern, Jones, and Broach.  CSH Laboratory, 1981.
pp. 639-640. 

   Methods in Enzymology Vol 194 (1991).  Guide to Yeast Genetics and 
Molecular Biology  eds. Guthrie and Fink, pp. 8-11.

    The Molecular and Cellular Biology of the Yeast Saccharomyces. 
Vol1 (1991) eds. Broach, Pringle, and Jones. p.ix (this is the only
source I've found that addresses the nomenclature of gene products
in yeast). 

... The maize nomenclature rules are described in the Maize Genetics Coop 
Newsletter #68 (3/94).
