Subject LDAP custom-asf schema - family name?

It would be very useful for generating sorted lists of names if LDAP
contained each person's given name and family name - or at least the
family name and the full name.

Is that something that exists already, or is being considered?

Also, there is a distinction between a person's full name (legal name)
and their name as they wish it to be known publicly. These are not
always the same.

For the purposes of generating public output, of course the public
name should always be used.

This is not always directly related to the full name, so it implies
that the family name should either be public or there need to be
separate versions for the full and public versions.

Note: where a family name has two words - e.g. Lewis Ship - this could
perhaps be rendered in HTML output using an encoded space, e.g. &nbsp;
