[openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website] Force-rename user accounts (#1720)

I think it would be helpful if API moderators (i.e. the DWG) were able to rename user accounts *and* prevent them from renaming themselves (back) again. There are some problem users who cycle through a large number of account names during a couple of days, many of them offensive, and we do show account names publicly a lot. ("Last edited by: Fuck you, retard" etc.)

Completely blocking such accounts (and asking the admins to rename them to something harmless) can sometimes be a solution but a slightly softer touch ("you can continue but we have sanitized/frozen your user name") would occasionally be helpful. 

Would a pull request that introduces an "account name locked" property be welcome?
