When a new username matches one of the 'reserved names' it will just come up with an error "username already in use". It should say "This username not allowed" or, if matching a wildcard "as it contains / begins with / ends with [insert 'reserved name' rule here]"

The message is stored in the language files.
You can have it display whatever you wish.
Scroll down to Languages and select it.
Select the language editor tab.
On select specific language file select generic.php
Click on go
Scroll down till you see a key name with: LOGIN_EXISTS
Edit the message to whatever you like.
then save.

This is not really a bug though.

I don't quite get the second part of your message but it sounds like you are asking for a feature request.
Which also is not a bug.
