Of course. I should have made explicit that the string-manipulation is
done on the abbreviated name, not the full form of the name:

<authority>
  <name type="personal">
    <namePart type="given">Bob T.</namePart>
    <namePart type="family">Smith</namePart>
  </name>
</authority>
<variant type="abbreviation">
  <name type="personal">
    <namePart type="given">R. T.</namePart>
    <namePart type="family">Smith</namePart>
  </name>
</variant>

(The record for Shin Ryu-un from an earlier post is another example of
the abbreviation needing to be made explicit.)

Actually, wouldn't "Smith, Bob" become "Smith, R." if converted to
initials? This stuff is always much more complicated than it looks at
first
glance.
