Would like to have different properties for RichWidgets\Input_AutoComplete for selected entry and dropdown list

Currently,  RichWidgets\Input_AutoComplete saves the same value shown in the dropdown in the input text box. I would like to have have an extra property for this. This property should be set in the input text box.

The use case is simple, imagine users lookup. If we just show user name then there is no way to distiguish the user with same name. We can append name and email in the dropdown but we don't want that to be saved in the input text box after selection. Rather we would like to show Name and Email in dropdown but Save just name. The RichWidgets\Input_AutoComplete does let you use identifer behind the seen but that has different purpose. I am more concern with the display of values rather actually what is saved in the database.
