> I see a bit of a problem with the scheme that it potentially permanently leaks the uid - displayname relationship to the outside.

This seems like it would pose problems for other sites with public profiles, such as [Github](https://api.github.com/users/zerebubuth) or Twitter (sadly no public API, but the user ID is clearly visible in the `data-user-id` properties on various HTML element). What is the problem with linking the UID and display name?
