Initializing compounded given names

Maybe we need to add the option to CSL to specify whether compounded given
names should retain their hyphen when transformed into initials. According
to a Zotero forum thread (http://forums.zotero.org/discussion/7810/),
Jean-Luc Picard can either become JL Picard or J-L Picard. In that thread I
proposed the lengthy hyphenate-initialized-compound-given-names boolean
attribute for cs:name. Opinions?

+1, if with default value of true.

Seems to be an necessary option. Maybe as a global option, with a
(slightly) shorter name, like initialize-without-hyphen? (scrabble
score of 99)?

I’ve added implementation code to citeproc-js, it’s just waiting for
agreement over inclusion in the schema, and a name.
