I know there was one proposal 
( to allow a 
third-party impersonation system (or that's how I interpreted it anyway) but 
it wasn't really picked up. A plug-in should be able to piggy-back on top of 
something like that rather easy to provide identity without needing the user 
to still be logged into their account.

On a totally unrelated note, my new threads seem to start under an already 
existing thread in the archives. Not sure what I'm doing wrong, weird.
