      Description

      I'd like to propose that we remove honorary titles from artist names,
      i.e., "Sir Thomas Beecham" [1] should be simply "Thomas Beecham".
      They are not really part of the artists' names, and should not apply
      to times before the titles were bestowed. ACs can be used to indicate
      the title if they are featured on a release, of course. I'd like to
      see this added to Style/Artist.
