XF 2.2 Easiest way to change member name in quotes after account deletion

Problem:
Member uses real life name as member name, e.g., John Doe.
Requests GDPR account deletion: Done. Any posts now attributed to Deleted member 12345.
Now notices threads quoting him still use his real name. Asks to have all those quotes changed so not quoting his real name.

Solution:
AdminCP >> Options
Word to censor: John Doe
Replacement: Deleted member 12345

This appears to work perfectly for quoted material.

Is there a downside at all to doing it this way? I wasn't expecting it to be this easy.

Moderators please move this if it's in the wrong forum.
