...but none of the sites I run have a "login screen".
Authors on the systems I run generally enter their names
in the edit form.

But just because there's no login screen doesn't mean that
authors don't want to sometimes "logout" -- i.e., to remove
their name from the "Author" field in the edit form.

(In some of my systems we have on the order of 1,000 authors;
we don't have "user logins" and we don't want them because maintaining
hundreds of user accounts and passwords would be a huge pain,
for almost no additional capability or benefit.)
