sigh. troublemaker. "inits=t t c", and journal B can cycle over the
elements adding dots?

\author{type=collab, name=The ITER Team}


\collab{name=The ITER Team}

um. tricky one. our DTD has a tag for this. i am tempted to

\author{type=presenter,surname=Thor,forename=A U}

ah, now ordering of authors is hard... i am assuming natural order, if
in doubt. we didnt promise to generate a BibTeX heade from the frontmatter

well, you solved it yourself. there comes a point where you have to
giev up and use a \note, perhaps.

oh, i believe you. i bet the wretches publish with Elsevier....

another one i am not happy about is shared departments:

  A U THor
    Dept Chemistry
  B L User
    Dept Physics
    University of Noddyland

i really dont see a clean markup for this
