userLoginId is not enough.  This doesn't happen OOTB as far as I can tell, so for this to
be a security issue someone would have to write a custom service to expose it.

Keep in mind that such a service would (or should...) be an obvious security hole. The UserLogin
entity includes both the username and password, and even though the password is encrypted
that is still a vulnerability.
