That's being considered in PEP 588:

It was a consideration since PEP 581 was written, but got moved to 588.

another missing point: the necessity to register an account with a third
party's social network, and accept their terms of service. For this
matter, a GH account is different from a BPO account because it is not
controlled by the PSF, and must be unique across projects. While I
understand this privacy concern is not shared by most core devs, it
should still be acknowledged.
