I’m late to this party, but thought I’d chime in to say that Dunn is called Duck Dunn much more often than he is called Donald Duck Dunn. I have heard and read the name “Duck Dunn” a million times and I don’t think I could have told you what his real first name was. I think the AAP should really be “Dunn, Duck, 1941-2012.” A lot of fans of Booker T. and the MGs might not even recognize the name Donald Dunn.
Stephen’s question is still a legitimate one for other cases, I’m sure.

Subject: Re: [PCCLIST] Names including an alternate name in quotes
What about a name like bassist Donald "Duck" Dunn, where the nickname appears to have a sequential association with the given name? I agree that the quotes around the nickname in the Dunn cases signifies that "Duck" is something other than a given middle name, but I'm not sure that rules out "Dunn, Donald "Duck" ..." as a useful VAP if supported by usage evidence.
Names have such variety, I'm not sure what possibilities I'd want ruled out in a policy statement focused on this kind of usage.

Some guidance in the form of an LC-PCC PS would certainly be helpful.
RDA doesn’t say what to do, but it’s pretty clear that in the two AAPs you cited that “Skip” and “Slim” are not middle names. I just don’t think that the person’s intention is to treat those nicknames as middle names. They are variant first names. I would have treated them as such:
UF Miller, Skip
Pickens, Ryan, 1972-
UF Pickens, Slim, 1972-
I think we should bring back the LCRI that didn’t get moved into the LC-PCC PSs.
I’d follow the pattern used in these RDA AAPs:
Miller, William “Skip”
Pickens, Ryan “Slim”, 1972-
I don’t see anything in RDA that says to ‘deconstruct’ the elements of a personal name and prefer some elements more than others.
Of course, ant variety of VAPs might be added.
That's what I would do.

I can't find any guidance for dealing with a name that appears in source as, in this instance, XJ 'George' Bailey. Perhaps Bailey, XJ with a 400 for Bailey, George?
