  Bravo, Hal!

    No one could have stated it better!  Let me add one observation --

   In corroboration, we have AACR2 22.1: "... choose as the *basis* of the 
heading ... the name by which [an author] is commonly [!] known", and that 
just ain't [!] likely to be the name on a thesis [except by chance], or be 
determinable by the thesis if that is all an author has "issued"!
