Note I started that suggestion with "if it's just a generic contact  
that you know nothing about..."  So in that context, there's no  
possible answer to your questions.  I wasn't suggesting we treat all  
musicians as organizations when we *do* know they're individuals, just  
that our default assumption of musical acts is that they're  
organizations.  You're of course welcome to publish under different  
assumptions; I wasn't suggesting we should all standardize on this.
