I would be happier with username_hint as it will cut down on errors by people who don't read the spec.
I have had to deal with enough issues in openID 2 where RP don't read the spec do something stupid and the media blames openID. I know we can't stop that completely, but I know if it is called username in a year or so there will be a security incident, that is not the specs fault but we will be blamed anyway.
If there is a good reason for calling it username I won't try to block it. At the moment the logic is mostly that is what facebook calls the element that they put the users profile page subsegment into.
