We haven't heard vocal complaints. It could well have caused headaches for those implementing authz in their systems. (Not because they need to use such usernames, but because they need to defensively program against an incompletely known set of problems.)
Would I be totally off the mark in suggesting an enhancement request for an authz file format that addresses these issues? It seems to me this is the sort of thing "enterprise" users would value.
