You'd think so, but given the amount of effort that goes into various
mechanisms for hiding abusive user names from public lists I can't see them
implementing this. ID and registration aren't much use without name, and even
editcount has caused people to bitch about privacy and ask for removal when
it's appeared on public lists before...
