AFAIK it is also possible to use the email to log in. I think it would be useful to show this in the label for better UX eg:

I'm not sure if all login plugins allow log in via email. If not, we would actually need an option to remove the "Email" part from this label making this feature more complicated. Maybe could show an info icon behind it instead?

Actually I just realised it does not work to login with email addresses!
Having "login with email" seems so obvious and it's surprising indeed we don't support it yet.
In this context we can either:

  1. change the UI field back to "Username" only
  2. or we actually implement login by Email address

(Looking at the code for 2) it seems not too involved as maybe mostly logic called in authenticateWithPassword has to change)
