Some donors prefer to be recognized in a way that is unique from their account name or how they'd be addressed in a letter. For example, I have a donor that is a widower. The account name is his name, I'd write a letter using a salutation to just him, but he likes his late wife to be listed with him in perpetuity. I don't have a way to do this other than to create a note and report on it or hope someone in the organization remembers. It seems since we always want permission and listing preferences, we should allow easy recording, export, and usage of those preferences.
Donor name: John Smith
Salutation: Mr. John R. Smith/Mr. Smith/John
Recognition: Jane and John Smith
