As an aside; in the case of, say:
title="Member of the Order of the British Empire">
there should probably also be, say, a class="ufnousetitle", so that the
value of the honorific prefix is "MBE":
title="Member of the Order of the British Empire"
obviating the need for a separate wrapper to achieve that result.
