Wouldn't a valid RDA variant form be
400 1 Smith, John $c (Saxophonist)
If so, the old 1XX could just be adjusted in form and changed to a 400
without any $w? There doesn't seem to be anything in RDA or LC/PCC PS's
that would forbid making that variant access point.

As contrast to George F./George Frasier, who wrote under both forms, I recently changed ?Polevoi?, Boris Nikolaevich? to ?Polevoi?, Boris? and ?Moore, Wilbert Ellis? to ?Moore, Wilbert E.? In both cases, the immediately available information showed a clear preference for the less full form. I didn?t establish without doubt that the fuller form was never used, but it certainly looked that way.

Though these codes are in the NACO manual and the MARC documentation, I believe that they date from an earlier stage of machine manipulation and couldn?t find reference to them in instructions about evaluating headings for RDA.
