Is it possible to change the username with the Membership API

It’s true that the default SQL Membership Provider does not allow username changes. However, there’s no intrinsic reason to prevent users from changing their usernames if you have a valid argument, on your site, to allow it. None of the tables in the SQL database have the username as a key, everything is based on the user’s ID, so from an implementation perspective it would be fairly easy.
