Not having a copy of the submission (or, for that matter, the
original) before me, I can only venture a guess. The most likely
scenario was that the gentleman neglected to check the box saying
that he wanted a holding name made for him, in case his "real
name" had a problem (which it did). Since the box wasn't checked
(remember, this is _only_ _a_ _hypothesis_!), the heralds had no
choice but to return his name and badge.
