I read all of that, that's not the point. Even out of respect for her
apparent interest in attributing all of her past work to her current
name (as evidenced by the re-release and re-titling of earlier albums
w/ Wendy) I think MB has a different agenda. There are numerous
examples of artist name changes for trivial to significant reasons.
What is our standard practice for that?
