Is there a way to improve how account folder names are chosen for Microsoft Accounts?

like right now it'll be the first five digits of your email address, which looks dumb if your email address starts with your name and your name is six or seven characters long so the folder name becomes clearly truncated like "graha". Would it be possible to change it so it reads to the first number or symbol, so if your email was graham.smith(atblablabla) or graham53(atblablabla) your account folder name would be "graham" - with a limit of seven or eight characters if no number or symbol is found? (quick search indicated the median name length is 6.5 letters long)


or, just pull the first name off the account profile and use that as the folder name?
