I would also like this, and I can give you an example of why it is important.
We are a membership organization for museums and archives. When key staff changes at one of our member organizations, the database contact information changes as well. But unfortunately, when the database contact info changes, all the user names in old blog and forum posts change as well.
For instance, I recently left my museum job, and someone else took my place. So what's happening now is that all my earlier blog and forum posts are appearing as if my replacement posted them. Neither she nor I are pleased about this. I've mitigated things temporarily by setting her organization's (my former organization's) privacy settings to hide the user first and last name, but that's not satisfying, either--in this scenario she can never post or comment as herself.
Please consider addressing this in a new version, or please suggest a viable work-around.
