::Oh, well, that means I'll probably have to go back and add anchors to some of my entries. I was hoping to avoid that — could we make exceptions for cases where the appropriate anchor is close enough to the top of the article?

Also relevant to that edit is the question of whether <code>''Common Name'' (as ''Pseudonym'')</code> should be repeated in full, or whether it is sufficient to use the pseudonym alone on the second and subsequent mentions of an artist if there is no need to disambiguate between that artist and another with a similar pseudonym.
