An ideal(?) scheme would apply to name=* so that:
[name+1]=* is equivalent to alt_name=* and
[name+2]=* is equivalent to alt_name_1/alt_name:1/alt_name1/[alt_name+1]=*.

The same scheme should also apply to old_name=* because you can get several
values [old_name+N]=*.
And then, in particular for [old_name+N]=*, it would be nice to provide
something for dates.
