"Last name only" --> "Full name" circa Y2K (inconsistency?)[edit]

In the template, why are the laureates between 1966 and 2000 listed by last names only but the laureates after 2000 are listed by their first and last names? Roger Hui (talk) 05:14, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

I was just about to ask the same question. Perhaps it is due to some custom (unwritten or otherwise)? (and perhaps that custom underwent some kind of mutation?)
Question: Should this custom remain "mutated" (inconsistent)?, -- or should the template be changed to follow one uniform "custom"? (any advice?) --Mike Schwartz (talk) 18:44, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
