Hi @alexandruias, welcome to Trac!

This sounds like an interesting idea worth consideration. Some feedback on your patch:

  1. To avoid undefined property notices, we should probably leverage a whitelist of possible user fields when passing $last_user->$field. We'll also need to update the documentation for the the_modified_author filter to mention that the parameter could be any of 'x', 'y', or 'z' user fields
  2. Make sure to follow core coding standards for spacing in adding your parameter
  3. We'll need an @param entry added to the phpDoc for the function for the new parameter, as well as a changelog entry

For the get_the_modified_author() @param entry, something like this should work:

* @param string $field Optional. User field to retrieve for the modified author. Accepts any WP_User field. Default 'display_name'.

For the function's changelog entry, something like this should work:

* @since 4.3.0 Added the `$field` parameter.
