What do they do with the booking data in the master names 
index if he decides to change his name during adjudication?
Does his former name become an alias?  How does the records 
management supervisor become aware of the 'public statement'?

Social engineering in RFPs are the bane of contracting and 
in every case, make the product and the process more 
expensive.  Fortunately, there are ways around this.

What do you do when "the man formerly known as Prince" shows up in an 
office and declares himself to be known by a non-alphanumeric, indeed 
non-Unicode symbol, which he draws on a piece of paper?

I suspect that the U.K. National Health Service would simply ask him to 
stand in the line designated for such folks -- in which case he'd likely 
expire before being checked in to see the doctor, but afterwords the 
documentation of this would be impecable :-)
