Is that why people add honorifics to someone's name?

Or is it because *they* feel the person is already
especially honorable?  or to put it another way, do
folks add honorifics because they wish to do more
honor to a person?

I think I would feel better just to hear some official body of Vedic scholars refer to him as Maharishi rather than Mahesh Yogi, let alone some Divine Holiness addition.
