When creating an identity including an email with it should be offered.
This could be changed / improved.
This doesn't fit within the SQRL protocol, which is focused on being a MINIMAL authentication ONLY protocol/process. A client could collect and store extra info if wanted to, but there is no way in the current protocol to communicate it to a server. I think we need to focus on getting what exists working well and supported... now is not the time to dream up new features. If work wanted to start on a future SQRL 2.0 protocol, that might be a better idea, but then that could distract resources away from even reaching 1.0.When creating an identity including an email with it should be offered.
Exactly right. Naming your (first) identity is fully optional in the Android client, and it's just there so that one can distinguish one identity from the other if more than one is present. Identity names are never transmitted or used elsewhere. In the "standard" scenario, where only one identity is present, we even hide any trace of "identity selection" within login dialogs etc.The name in the client I think is just to be convenient for the user when interacting with the client. It is never sent to any site. Most of us want it to stay that way.
