GitHub now duplicates the `name` as `displayName` if the user does not have a profile name.
Based on talking to folks at Google last week, `''` (empty string) could be appropriate, but that is not properly documented at this point.

It would be nice if we could avoid having to assert that the user has a display name, but we'll stick with this workaround unless the spec develops changes/advice otherwise!
