element-citation can work well for journal references (and in this case you could put the letter in a comment element), but for non-journal references element-citation can work you into some very bad corners. My JATS-con 2011 talk was about this (you might want to look at the video). So it may be prudent to look at the non-journal references you have and see if you can handle them without exception using element-citation. If not, I'd move to mixed-citation.

Thanks Jeff, that's good to know. If we were using mixed-citation (as
Bruce suggested), then leaving the suffix outside of <year> would make
sense, but as we're trying to use element-citation for everything,
using @iso-8601-date does seem like an appropriate solution.
