From the point of view of Kolab this makes imho not much sense. With Kolab
every person/account has a unique email address.
If like in the case of Bo's family some people are sharing a single email
address (imho not really required with modern technology as email addresses
are really cheap) they have in the Kolab modelling concept to be treated like
a single entity.
On the other hand the usage of the additional proprty display name does _hurt_
for the simple reason that we _intentionally_ allow the changing of the users
name while we dissallow the changing of the primary email address.
We require this in the case a marriage etc. In such a case we allow to change
the display name (e.g. firstname and newlastname) or new titles like Dr..
While the primary email address remains we add a new alias which reflect the
new names (e.g. firstname.newlastname at kolab.tld)
