Good morning Sir William,

I don't think there is a name display "team" but there is a "profile improvement" team.
by Maggie N. G2G Astronaut (1.3m points)
My particular concerns are The various purposes for 
which name displays are used incl
        Search engines
        Profile headings
        What is shown on various trees
        "Foreigners" such as British Nobility,Russians and Patronymics 
Incl territorial designations
       Economy of space
       Privacy concerns

If this Is open for debate then I Would like to contribute to the discussion.  If it is not then there is less point.

On the profile improvement page I removed the word "current" from "active participants" as it is (and generally is) tautologous.
At the moment I am particularly bothered by people showing up on print  outs of trees as "George Gordon" when (he) was known as "Earl of Montrose"
