AncestryDNA profiles managed by another account

What is the proper way to document AncestryDNA (current version) for managed accounts. Example, I had my parents and in-laws tested. They show up as M.B. (managed by brentbiggs74), A.A (managed by brentbiggs74) etc. "M.B." and A.A. are not valid userIDs. Do I put them all down as brentbiggs74?

To be accurate, shouldn't it be recorded as account name, and test name?

I used Ancestry's wording for the inline reference, but explained the connection in the biography.  Take a look and see if that makes sense to you - http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Heath-3395

For your example, I might say a match was made between ancestry.com member brentbiggs74's mother MB and XXXX for the bio.

Then the reference, use MB (administered by brentbiggs74)

This way readers of the profile will have the information and, hopefully, understand that your ancestry username is the contact.
