I used to support the "verified names are OK" or "allow Google only to know the real name", but given this behavior regarding the nymwars, plus the casual collection and keeping of wifi passwords, I no longer trust Google as an organization to be able to properly handle having someone's meatspace credentials.
It's now "use anything they like, and to hell with Google or anyone else being able to verify it."
