Yes ideally it should be pulled from the OS but even that data isnt always
correct, because users dont always put their real or complete name into the
OS's user account. But when it comes to creating documents and those documents
having their real name visible in it (e.g. in a comment), users are more likely
to put it in, which is why even MSO shows a dialog on first run asking for it.

Also LO's pulling the name from the OS and parsing it based on a space
character doesnt take into account when user's have two first names and a space
between it. Also it leaves the initials field blank.

I'm assuming it still exists in git if it had to be resurrected as it used to
be, but as previously stated, it could be done with a completely new dialog and
include features like bug 69042.
