It is an alias name for an organization.  It's not for everyone, but I

I disagree.  A separate ID field does not add any value at all to this
schema.  The pk is compound (org id and contact id) so it allows n-to-n

I think that's what the comm tables are for, but only contacts have
them.  It would be useful to have something similar for orgs.

created by is just a reference as to who created the contact record,
modified is who last updated it.  It's for quick auditing purposes.
