Nor am I, but if I am for instance preparing a bibliography, or doing
anything else that needs authors in alphabetical order, I grab any help I
can find; in the front of a book, under the copyright stuff, there is often
guidance.  That it's there for the benefit of librarians doesn't mean I
can't use it, though I suppose I might be risking the wrath of the privy
organisation of librarians (that runs the world really) by revealing one of
the prized secrets of their trade.  If I am never heard from again you will
know that their agents have been dispatched to deal with this infringement
of their prerogatives.
