It would be nice if completion worked for real names too, yes. But there 
are people for whom I know their email address but not necessarily the 
exact spelling of their Real Name ... and certainly not what username 
they chose when they registered on this site. So it would be nice if 
completion worked for all, even though not all would work for 
@mentioning in text.
