 do the same for user_login / user_nicename.

 Why? I don't understand the connection. Aside from the fact, mentioned
 above, that user_login/user_nicename are not BP's data, there's the
 additional fact that we hardly ever display login/nicename in the
 interface. The only place I can think of is the @-mention interface.
 Display names, on the other hand, are shown everywhere, and so can cause
 layout issues. Unless you have a reason for wanting to limit the length of
 login/nicename that is not related to page layout?
