Further to my previous response, I should have mentioned that you
can put an extra field in your bibliographic database, and use the
"sort" command between ".R1" and ".R2" to specify either that the
extra field is the sort key or that it influences the sort (e.g. by
being appended or prepended to the author name).

So in fact 'refer' does allow the kind of independence between
sort key and entry which I was talking about before (in fact I was
thinking more of indexing when writing that, where this issue is
a definite problem in groff).
