Hi all,

Our editors would like to allow authors to specify preferred pronouns in
their manuscripts. Although the initial goal is to provide this in a
footnote for just the corresponding author, I'd like to tag this in a more
general way that would allow any author to add this to their name. So far
the best option I have been able to work out is to slightly misuse the
<name-alternatives> tagging:

<contrib contrib-type="author">
    <string-name specific-use="preferred-pronouns">they/them</string-name>

Does anyone have a better suggestion for how to handle this?
