Rename is still possible, similar to what we have now, but just on a global level. So no,
they are not stuck forever with it, of course.
One thing to note is the technical limitation on # of edits. If account has too many
edits, he may not be able to get it renamed further. How will that be managed? I guess
James will address this issue, as he said he'll look through the rename list (make a
one-time offer etc? ) .
