Disambiguate add-suffix with Authors/editors

I came across a case where (Smith 2001) and (Smith 2001) are not disambiguated with the "a" "b" suffixes, because in one of them, Smith is listed as Editor, and in the other as Author.

I'm guessing it would make sense for both Author and Editor to disambiguate. (in a case like this with only editor listed, and thus the citation is indistinguishable) .

Any thoughts? Is this a challenge with the new CSL processor? Would there be any reason you might not want to add the suffix in this case?
  • The new processor will add the year-suffix (if the option is used in the style and) the rendered cites are the same. For that particular formatting choice, it doesn't matter what variable(s) are used to compose the string.
