Would the best what to do this be a <listPerson> in the header
with <person> elements in it that you point to from the text (and
similar for <org>s). So in the text you have:
<persName ref="#smith001">Mr Smith</persName> worked for <orgName
ref="#apple">Some Fruity Company</orgName>
And this points to a <person> of:
<persName type="pseudonym">Mr Happy</persName>
<!-- more info about person here -->
And similarly with an <org xml:id="apple"> inside a <listOrg>?
That way each name instance is identified by the thing to which
it points and is also where a processor would get more
information about synonyms etc.
