This would be a cool feature to have, and we've talked about it in the
past.  The feautres havent been implemented because of privacy
concerns - In the UK at least, you have to opt-in to allow your
personal details to be given out, which has prevented OSM from giving
out user information.  I think there is going ot be a one off opt in
when we move to Rails - I thought I saw I form in the OSM Rails a few
months ago, but its not there now.

Anyway, definitely +1 from me.  We should also make user data
available via the API, to facilitiate "who's mapping where" mashups
and  the like.
