In Writer, the inserted 'Note' by Insert->Note shows the author name in it.
The order of First and Last names is fixed, but it needs to be dependent on
user's locale.
In zh_CN, zh_TW, ja, ko locales, it should be Last name First name order.
Please refer to issue 103200 related to this.

IMHO, this is not a good idea because some people (especially those who work
internationally) may enter their names in Roman letters while they are using OOo
with Japanese locale. In this case, users in Japan usually anticipate the same
order as English. As there are many different conventions in the way to write
their name and name order depends on not only the language you use but also the
country, the region and even the context, it should be selectable.

I think this issue should be handled as soon as i103200 closed. Is there any
plan for this? or is it on the road?
