Most aspects don't run afoul of any policies that I'm aware of, though
the main concern that I have is increased load on our services by one of
the features.   That said, it looks quite interesting. Torley pointed
out to me that this can help fulfill this feature request:

Please fetch this information on demand rather than doing so
automatically.  At a minimum, please have a default "off" checkbox for
"Fetch account information".  To be honest, I don't know how much extra
load this feature would really impose, but in general, we're pretty
sensitive to the load issues right now.
