Would the FLA require *legal* names? I'm probably not the only person who uses 
in daily life a name that isn't clearly a pseudonym (= looks like a name 
rather than a handle, and is in fact a "real" name) but isn't the official 
wallet name either. I know that if I had to sign something with my wallet name 
I'd probably bow out -- not only is it something that nobody except officialdom 
knows me by, but I also don't want to "out" it to the community.
