It’s be cool if you could make it so your display name isn’t posted to “Everyone On The Web”, because some people don’t want to have their real name posted on the Internet for any variety of valid reasons, up to and including they’re just a shy introvert (and there’s nothing wrong with that).

Som, Your point is very valid that there are people who due to some reasons don’t want their name to be displayed publicly. But Google+ team doesn’t want any profile to be private only. The only information you must reveal in a public profile is full name and gender.
