There was a discsussion on the talk/imports lists recently (September,
subject "Proposed mechanical edit to convert alt_name tags") where it
seemed to me that the consensus was to indeed have a semicolon-delimited
list of names in alt_name, instead of having alt_name_1, alt_name_2 etc.
like initially suggested in that thread.
