Suggestion: Retrieve current Figma user easily through API

I know this is a relatively specific use case but it would be useful if you could retrieve the currently logged in user info (name/email) through the API. My use case is that I want to send that information along inside of a design token JSON file (we’ve made a plugin similar to the design tokens plugin) and when the JSON file gets sent to a GitHub PR to go through the conversion flow in Amazon Style Dictionary, the communication is hands off between designer/developer. Eventually the tokens will run tests in that PR and if there are any issues, the developer needs to know whom to contact that output the design token file that was generated and sent to GitHub, so I’d love to include the Figma designer’s info in that file so they can be reached easily without having to track that person down in other avenues.
