Hence the suggestion that the user has to request removal.

Preferable for the affiliation to be a variable linked to the username. It
can then be changed if/when applicable. Is should be possible to link a
string of affiliations to a username. User should be able to add
affiliations at will but probably should have to request to have them
removed

Do WMF accounts still get the staff usergroup? If so, then the "affiliation
variable" already exists. Building the (WMF) into the username makes the
affiliation close to indelible; if it is confined to a usergroup, then the
removal of the usergroup hides the previously obvious connection between
edit and affiliation.
