I have no reluctance at all in creating or using undifferentiated names (code b), if I am unable to differentiate the name in standard ways. As far as I know it is totally acceptable within name authority and NACO practice and need not be frowned upon.  I prefer not to use  phrases, titles, disciplines, institutions, etc. that I do not feel are appropriate qualifiers.
