About smallcaps, we didn't do it then because there was no way known to
us to use them in our then-current toolchain. But we've changed now to
XML and apparently it is possible to use them -- we could try something
like <emphasis role="caps_lastname"> and define a CSS rule like

.caps_lastname {font-variant: small-caps;}

(Apparently you also need to set '' to 1 in the
stylesheet). This does it for HTML. You also need some FO trick to
cover the PDF (probably something like what a042750646db did to change
catalog_table_entry formatting.)
