Subject: Author Middle Initials


The example given in http://www.docbook.org/tdg/en/html/author.html
for middle initials is:

  <othername role='mi'>D</othername>

In the XSL-FO output target for the stylesheets, this will be
formatted as "Norman D Walsh" when the author.othername.in.middle
parameter is non-zero (via person.name and when it calls
person.name.first-last based on your localization). I'd like a period
after the D.

Does the semantics of the othername/@role="mi" suggest that the period
be added after the D in the othername ("D.") or that that period
should be in the stylesheets?
