    (I wrote this here cuz the post would exceed 1500 words)

    This suggestion has some potentials for map making. For instance,

    1. string concatenation in general

    2. showing scoreboard score on tooltip (pairing up with https://feedback.minecraft.net/hc/en-us/community/posts/360011485651-String-type-for-execute-store-command)

    3. health bar for non-custom mobs

    4. custom durability bar

    5. a whole keyboard input system

    No comment on the suggestion itself, but in case you are unaware, you can modify a sign to the desired text component (using selector/score/whatever), and then use /data modify to copy it to the desired mob. So at least there is a workaround for now

    You can actually do it (even if it's not the simplest way to do it) by copying those data into a sign, then those data are translated into fix JSON Compound, and you can copy them into entity's CustomName.
