Clutter the display? We're talking about (or should be) capturing and
encoding the data. Software of a wide variety will be written to parse the
data, decide what gets displayed, and add appropriate punctuation for the
purpose. Making any assumptions about what will be displayed is, in fact,
impossible, since that would assume we know about all the environments in
which this data would be used. All we need to figure out now is what data is
important to capture and how to encode it. And the "how" will be, at times,
linking to an authoritative source.
