@gravitystorm 
a) nobody even remotely claimed that that accounts ids themselves are personal information, however they are the most convenient key that links meta data and geo-data together to a contributors profile that clearly is personal data, other not quite so convenient keys are display names, changeset ids, editor meta-data, time stamps and location.
b) nobody said the proposed change contravened the GDPR, as already said multiple times, it simply might have consequences elsewhere that should be thought through.

Final word nobody is going to bother with doing any further work on the topic if the response is going to be @zerebubuth and yours paraphrased "it's all nonsense".
