Godley & Creme, and other "directing duos"

( A similar issue/thread was started a few years ago and apparently "a ticket" was filed. Not fully sure what happened to that one. But my question is very similar to the older one:
https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/a-situation-with-directing-duo-fatal-farm )

I noticed that e.g. "The Police: Don't Stand So Close to Me' 86" music video (basically just a random example, but I'm sure there are other similar cases) has three credited directors:
- Lol Creme
- Kevin Godley
- Godley & Creme (which is the "directing duo" of Lol Creme and Kevin Godley: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godley_%26_Creme )

Now, my question is actually pretty simple: Do IMDb allow basically a "double credit" for both Creme and Godley? And are the "directing duos" allowed to have a name page? Note, that I'm not talking about the bands or musical groups here.

Like in the older thread, I personally believe that it would be best to credit (only) both directors with the attribute (if needed) like "as Godley & Creme". But that's my opinion and other people may have other opinions. It would nice to hear IMDb's "official" answer.
