Can we have a flair-like tooltip for usernames in comments?

I made a comment below, if you hover over the link to my name, you will see a random number. what the crap does this number mean? It's not my ID... it should say 2119. It doesn't change across comments. So it's like a Comment User ID or something. But what is the purpose?
