Assumptions I'm making.

1. I don't have to derive an honorific (or any variant).
Either the content is marked up or it's not.
I don't think for docbook deriving names is reasonable.

2.I can see how
might work, but it just seems laborious (could be me though).

I'd prefer to use xml markup, and simply refer to the names?


If the el name can't be found in the item I'm formatting then it's a 
blow up job? Or ignore it.
I do like the spacing idea though (%b) to move the layout task to the 
<xsl:text>might be the simplest</xsl:text>
