I could be wrong too, but I think he wants to support URIs that would let people use their OpenID to log in (which would be super-cool).

A typical OpenID URI:  alice.openid-provider.org

URLs in username slugs? Vanity issue? Okay, I'm the first to admit that I
know nothing about coding, but to me this smacks of allowing a bot to create
thousands of users on a multi-blog setup that not only get links via bogus
posts, but from the username as well.

Or I could be 100% wrong, in which case, ignore this rambling dissertation
and find another thread that interests you.
