No I don't see the point.

Thinking objectively I do disagree with this. I don't mind publishing
my own name but other contributors might. What is your reasoning
behind this requirement?

It's not worth breaking existing clones to 'paint the bikeshed' as
they say with full names. It's just busy work. Attention is better
spent actually developing the AUR code rather than worrying about not
being able to see a contributor's full name. The AUTHORS file is a
great way to link those usernames with full names and emails if those
contributors wish to disclose that information.
