Regarding establishing new headings that do not conflict: The optional
provisions given in AA2 rules and the corresponding LCRI instructions
for new headings which encourage the use of the $d and the $q. We
follow these options. I do not understand your objection to the $q. The
presence of qualified initials may prevent duplicate headings being
created for the same person.
LCRI 22.17 Dates. For new headings that do not conflict, apply the
option decision to add the date(s) whenever it is known.
LCRI 22.18 A Fuller forms. Apply the optional provision. This means
adding within parentheses the full form of and abbreviation used in the
heading when the full form is known with certainty.
