Default Why no username changes?

I heard that this was already suggested lots of times, but turned down. Why? Why no username changes? Why can't we atleast change our 'display' names? If its possible with vBullentin?

What's a display name?
Lets say my current user was "Bubbles4ever31"
..but I want to change it to something else.
Hmm, how about a display name?
My new display name would be for example "xXGoldenPupXx"
I would still log in as bubbles4ever31, but everyone would see me as xXGoldenPupXx?

Could be possible, or not?

It requires a GREAT deal of work to have Justin change all of the threads and posts that were yours to being able to be found under a new user name.

(this is from another thread)

also.. it would just cause chaos

I agree..
I wouldn't know who would be who.

And like Quack quoted, it would have to be a really good reason to have Justin change your username.

I think it would get really confusing to some people.
Like one minute I'd be 'Tullylover97' and the next I'd be 'coollike'
It'd just be hard to keep track of everyone who changed their username, and what their username was before.

username changes are only done if we ask you. If everyone had a display name that they could change, that would be totally confusing as no one would recognize anyone.
