I have also given serious consideration to having my work labelled as Template Fu, simply because that name will have so much more traction and recognisability than my own real name would due to being a part of this competition and community for so long.
The main reason for this would be the potential for increased sales that it might bring, and as an aspiring game designer, I will admit openly that I will do whatever it takes to become a valuable games design resource to all the companies out there, and part of that is building a widly recognisable name.
I would certainly consider requesting it, but it would be totally up to the publisher if they were happy to do so.
