    I'd like to give my feedback on this.

    One issue that may arise of allowing people to change their usernames without cool-down is it grants power to malicious users of it. Hackers on servers or rule-breakers will be hard to catch as their identity is constantly changing. As you mentioned too, keeping track of friends will be difficult as well.

    Just in general, preserving the identity of a player will be challenging if said player is able to modify their username at will whenever without cool-down. It'll just be chaotic, is all.

    With Microsoft accounts becoming mandatory, it would make since to have a system where two names are available, one for your Xbox account name, and one for your Minecraft in game name. This would also open up the possibility of having two people with the same nickname, but a differentiation using a second name on a new profile system or after their nickname in the tab menu.

    Perhaps even a system where uuid's are customizable like your real name, and visible in game under your name.

    Mojang could also go the rout of integrating a friend system similar to bedrock, so changing your account name will not cause you to loose your connections to other players.

    I feel Minecraft is due an overall overhaul to the multiplayer system, primarily in the field of adding features like friending and faster name changing.

    Instead of removing it completely I'd say it would be a better idea to reduce it from 30 to a shorter period of time, a fair amount of time I would think would be 14 days (2 weeks).
