Google already allows firstname.lastname@example.org
Have done so (quietly) for a while. It's less useful than you think, as a lot of email forms won't recognise this as a valid email.
I'd noticed that
"editors, and decreasingly, proof-readers"

Not for pages
You can do the groups thing with most of the site, but not Pages you like, which are always public. No option. What FB just did was convert your employer, school, music, TV and movies to Pages, making public. The only option was to remove them all from your profile.
Nice bark. Nasty bite.

If Google really believe in automatic matching...
... then why not place the extra ads for free, but charge double (or some multiple) for click-throughs. Then people will pay more if Google really does find them more customers, but not otherwise.

The pirate logo, because it seemed relevant.
UK Nanos Warning
"* Your dryness may vary. For UK readers, this would be dry in the sense that dry white wine is dry."
What, full of alcohol? That'd explain the sudden flammability, I guess.
