Currently the username change isn't incremental or using the deferred system, this causes username of members who have loads of content (profile posts, likes, posts) to fail without any error, just not change.

My suggestion would be to make username changes go through the deferred system, at least in XF 2.0 - so that users with high content can enjoy username changes.

Yes, there is an option to skip updating denormalized versions of the username, but we don't want any reference to the old username left (apart from the usual old username in quotes). And when there is already an existing powerful solution to handle extensive tasks, why not use it? :D
