I vote for that
I have run into Author pairs that also have done solo work. Using separate full names allows those works to be found along with the combined ones.

I agree. I carry it even further when an author pair uses a pen name.

I list 3 names on some books. As an example, if I had a copy of Gunner Cade, I would list it by the joint pen name "Cyril Judd" ("Cyril" for Kornbluth's real first name and "Judd" derived from Merril's pen name) and the names of the two co-authors, Judith Merril (actually a pen name itself) and C. M. Kornbluth. That way I find it searching for any of the three.

That's how I do it as well and very handy for company names too.

Remember or ever hear of Frank Zappa? He named his daughter Moon Unit.
