I wasn't aware of this policy either. But I understand the intention 
and I think it is good that way.

You already mentioned that that account was held by a different person.
So using the same account for yorself would be definitely misleading.

But is it really such a big problem? You could simply use a similar name,
like rwang or ray_wang or wang or whatever...

I also often have the problem, that my usual name is already registered by 
someone else.
