I too disagree with the suggestion to make cross references from non-nominative forms of names. This is not just a question of Latin-- many language groups have inflected forms, including Slavic and Finno-Ugric. I would think it would suffice to record the inflected form as usage in the 670. Unlike some others, I would actually be horrified if I saw an authority record with an inflected form in a 400 field; it would suggest to me that the cataloger was not familiar with the language of the item being cataloged.
