That is why one of the options during the delete will handle this
special case: 2 different options as Simon points out (and the admin
will be able to choose what to do at time of deletion because it
depends on the user account, site, etc...):

1. leave username and delete all personal information and account info
and set account status to a  new 3rd type, 'deleted' ... by doing
this, this account and username can still be permanently deleted if
need be

2. delete entire account and username, and set all posts to 'Unknown'
or 'Anoymous'

At time of deletion, whomever is deleting, can choose one of these
options if it fits in the deletion workflow.

This should account for all scenarios and everyone should be happy, no?
