Is a signature, or other info that identifies the submitter allowed in the supporting text?

Note: Supporting test not title, photo, or description

This morning I had this question come up and I re-read the help pages and searched through AMA responses to find what I thought was there to support the claim that this is reason to reject. The most relevant text I could find was on the Reporting Abuse page:

  • Offensive or abusive title/description edits: 
  • Attempts to add an offensive title/description to a live Wayspot
  • Title/description edits that mention codenames, real names or other personal information of players
  • Titles, descriptions, or supporting information that attempt to inappropriately influence the reviewers to vote in a specific way

I've always been under the impression that anything at all in the nomination which identifies the submitter is a reason to reject but I can't find anything conclusive from Niantic that confirms this.
