Published changesets are immutable.  There is a separate file for user 
that is used by some tools that work with the names, notably churn.

BTW, the fine README_REPOSITORY contains a lot of distilled information 
from several years of experience. It is a bit long, but most of it is 
relevant.  Concerning user names it says:

   There is also $HOME/.hgrc for per-user Mercurial configuration.  The
   initial configuration requires at least an entry to identify yourself
   as follows:

     username = XXX

   Isabelle contributors are free to choose either a short "login name"
   (for accounts at TU Munich) or a "full name" -- with or without mail
   address.  It is important to stick to this choice once and for all.
   The machine default that Mercurial produces for unspecified
   [ui]username is not appropriate.

On AFP I've also seen a machine default for "fetch" merges.  This is the 
canonical configuration for it:

   hgext.fetch =

   fetch = -m "merged"

I won't argue about the exact spelling of the "merged", but it should not 
be the machine generated thing.
