>> Putting aside the ability to specify datatypes, you could always make
FIRST and LAST attributes of the respective elements.  Also, aren't
positional names (first, last) too presentational without describing the
data? For instance,
replace FIRST with GIVEN and LAST with FAMILY. (This might make the DTD
more reusable in countries that don't order
their names the same as most western countries as well.) <<

It would be more acceptable to utilize FIRST with GIVEN NAME and  LAST

We found the X.400 naming conventions  to be internationally acceptable.
