Your assumption that it's a simple piece of information and requires no

Sounds reasonable.

The fact that Google can create a test account and reproduce the issue (as I
have now done several times) tells me that they want the account information
for some other purpose or that they're just being lazy.

So, you now have a test account that doesn't reveal any secrets about you and
which is affected... so you could surely give Google the name of that one?
