Of course. It's different story.

My concern is that the list seems implicitly assumes that each name
appears first name then last name. So people might misunderstand that
"Fujii" is the first name and "Masao" is the last name. I don't how he
actually feels about that, but if I were him, I would feel
uncomfortable. If the list explicitly stats that we do not guarantee
that the order of the last names and the first names are correct, then
that kind of misunderstanding could be avoided.
