Agreed :) It is a little strange that they require something opposite to
the standard mercurial convention.
Currently we cannot adopt Sun's convention since we don't have access to
their server script nor user database (they were never published). So
there is no way to convert the names they use to standard authors that
make sense to the rest of the world. It would be nice if Sun would
accept the standard author setup for non-Sun engineers.
