modern administrations need clear rules for names. This is the reason why the traditional rules disappear (principally because they're different in each country).
In an international and rational context, administrations need to fix the names "for ever".
But for us, in genealogy, it doesn't matter. It's two different worlds.

(but I'm not an authority).
