When a name is changed, authority records with dependent headings
(such name/title headings), should all be changed to match. Most of
the time people remember to do this, although all of the changed
records don't necessarily arrive in a single week's worth of name
Some of us have programs that sweep the authority file for records
that continue to use the old heading in dependent headings, when the
main part has changed; so one way or another things shouldn't be out
of tune for very long.
