      Description

      This proposal is an update to the "Artists with multiple names" doc[1].

      • Makes greater use of artist aliases and artist credits.
      • Specifically recommend avoiding the use of legal names as separate artists.
      • Moves it to a section of the Style/Artists main document.
      • Changes the format to a guideline format instead of a Q&A format
      • Removes the style distinction between groups and individuals.

      Proposal is at [2] and replaces [3].
