  Silly technical remark: Everybody, please stop doing this with
parentheses.
It breaks in right to left languages. Gary-WMF is just as readable, and
doesn't have this problem. Thanks for the attention.

Your suggestion works against the built-in assumptions of MediaWiki for
disambiguations.

Then "Gary, WMF"?

Removing the affiliation from the name itself and adding it as a group would allow the mediawiki to format the name and group in a way that makes sense for the given language. Keep to the parentheses for english and such, do other things for ones where that doesn't work or wouldn't be the norm.
