secondary coorporate author (ASA style)

Would there be any way to include information about an corporate author only in the bibliography, but not in citations? I often use abbreviations for corporate authors, but I would like the non-abbreviated form to appear in the bib, like:


as can be seen in WTO (2010) ...


WTO (World Trade Organization). 2010. Conference Paper xyz...

If you would know that every corporate author can be abbreviated, you might be able to cook something up, but without that knowledge, it is impossible to make a decision on wheter a corporate author should be abbreviated or not.

Would it be possible to use the "comment" field and have it printed in the bibliography behind the author?
