 Replying to [comment:4 iandunn]:
 > I'm not sure that's a use case we want to support. Personally, I've very
 skeptical of the motivations behind that practice, especially when a
 company requires their employees to do it, which I assume is usually the
 case. If she actually wants to do it, that's far less sketchy, but it
 still seems like a bad practice from a community-building perspective.

 I'm the person in question and I own my company.  I prefer to have a logo
 and not my face on the plugins because I'm no longer a freelancer.  I'm
 working hard to build a brand for my company that is not just associated
 with me as a person, hence the use of consistent handle that is company
 related rather than personal on social media and WP.org.

 I suppose I could theoretically create a login for .org that is related to
 my personal identity just for WordCamp, but I would never log into it
 again or do anything else with it, so it wouldn't be the best
 representation of how I contribute as a whole.

 Not sure if that clarifies things at all :-)
