Re:  Implement data rules in application code?
So JATS would adequately cope with Leone Sextus Denys Oswolf Fraudatifilius Tollemache-Tollemache de Orellana Plantagenet Tollemache-Tollemache?

An omission in most element or field structures I have seen is any indication of which name you are conventionally addressed by (or your preference).

I use my middle name (for irrelevant historical family reasons); Inspector Morse used his surname. The one thing we can be dogmatic about is that making assumptions into rules is always wrong 😃

The JATS XML vocabulary for journal articles does a few things

 - A person does not need to have a <surname>, they can
   have only <given-names> as folks may do in Indonesia.

 - A person can have multiple <surname>s (partronymic etc.)

  - The <given-names> element can also repeat, so you can
    put all your given names into one “Kenneth Pritchard Carnu”
    or split them up into 3 <given-names> elements.

Good for flexible tagging and not so good for consistency of


P.S. My great-uncle was assigned the middle name “None” during
that same war.

I expect most of us know people with similar problems: an Indonesian
mate has only one name "What is your first name?" "Munali" What is your
last name?" "Munali" "So Munali Munali?" "No just Munali".  Transgender
people must be quite patient. Are validations against men having
husbands or women having wives being disabled as we sit here?
My father, who did not have a middle name, told me that (in World War II), when he was in the U.S Army, that his service records listed his middle name as "NMN" (No Middle Name).
