that's how i pictured it too -- it isn't a "profile of a person", rather 
a "profile of someone's activity in bugzilla".
what happens with mozillians integration is very much separate from this 
work.

i would prefer to add a link to their mozillians profile (if provided) 
to the existing menu which is shown when you click on a user.  this will 
be trivial to implement, and we don't need to worry about messing with 
the mozillians api and verification.

later on we can (and should!) look at bringing relevant data directly 
onto the bugzilla page.
