I'm not interested in having my identity shared across systems, particularly when some of those systems are built for and funded by correlating as much of that identity information as possible and using it for advertising.  From this perspective, using a Github OAuth is the *least bad* alternative, but it's still not a direction that I  want to encourage.

Completely in agreement.  Requiring a third-party login is a good reason for not using a service.
