If a user changes his username too frequently, I wonder if he has the maturity required to edit OpenStreetMap in a productive way. Changing the username frequently makes following the changes and analysing the edits more difficult than necessary. Some drafts of the Organised Editing Policy forbid frequent changes of usernames for a very good reason (i.e. violating this rule might end in a ban).
