Sure. For a start, it wouldn't be possible to filter issues by @author,
instead you would have to search for "Original created by @intrigeri" -
which might be acceptable.
I think more UX impact has the authorship of the comments. For example
when I'm reading up on a ticket with long comments, for each comment I
read, I first have to scroll down to the bottom to see who the author is
- which of course is important information when you're trying to follow
a discussion. And since we're reading from top to bottom, it's generally
harder to see that information, which makes it harder to quickly skim
