Only place we store user data in client are external recent changes... and it's not practicable nor worth it to change those if someone on repo (Wikidata) gets renamed.

It's not a rename :P

So, looking at an example inserted row, rc_user is set to 0, and rc_user_text is the user's name at the time of their edit.

The user's id on Wikidata is serialized into the rc_params field. Will anything read from that and try to look up user info for that user? If not, we should be good.

The user id in there is unused, as it's not needed for formatting.
