      Description

      https://musicbrainz.org/doc/Style/Artist/Sort_Name currently says:

      Person artist names have sort name "family name, given name".

      This is pretty clear for names where the given name comes before the surname, but it wasn't clear to me whether it was intended to apply when the surname already comes before the given name. Could you please make it explicit whether or not to include a comma in that situation?
