Consistent use of maiden name

Classification: Query
I've found a large branch of my family tree on another Ancestry.com public tree. However, the maker of that tree has followed a convention of using a woman's maiden name as a middle name and listing her by her married surname once she has married. I have followed another convention of maintaining her maiden name throughout. So, what might be the appropriate, or most ethical, ways to incorporate this new branch into my tree? Should I edit each female person's name to comply with the convention I am using, or should I just bring them all into my tree as-is?
