I'm sorry - "break" is too strong a word. I only mean that users
might be confused or annoyed at being taken to the personal options
page instead of the inbox. No, virtual setups don't automatically
provide real names, either, but interestingly, you are testing against
the email_address field and assuming that if it is not set, the real
name field isn't set either. What is the problem of sending mails
without a "real name"?
