Does Auth0 Support non-email based login like phone number or userName?

We have use cases where we need to support users without email. Is it possible to extend Auth0 with rules, Extensions, Hooks to support non-email based login?

Passwordless authentication via phone number would allow for no email address but only phone number https://auth0.com/docs/connections/passwordless, otherwise an email address is always required while a username is optional.

(In case you need users with a fixed password: a workaround might be to use (unknown to the user) dummy email addresses but also enable to require username for a connection, which is what the user would use to login. Of course, password reset mechanism, account verification, etc. wouldn’t really work well then out of the box. And you would need to customize the login widget/process, use a custom UI).
