Hi Mark --

If you are using Green (archiving) you could use <named-content> inside

<contrib contrib-type="author">
<string-name><given-names>>m</given-names> <surname>Isobe</surname>
<named-content content-type="pronouns">they/them</named-content>

That's a little awkward, but perhaps less so than a name-alternative that
contains only the pronouns.

I have been able to work out is to slightly misuse the <name-alternatives>
