This is dangerous, per comment 2. In combination with
$wgAllowExternalImages=true this is *lethal*. It also impedes our ability to
implement caching of these objects, and it will always be inconsistent and
confusing (cf
http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:Code/MediaWiki/49575#code-comments).  

The word should display the correct previous user wherever that concept makes
sense: edit notices especially, but also places like CodeReview.  Other places,
it should display something that's not a privacy vulnerability.
