How does this work if users may have multiple accounts sharing the same email address. A checker probably ought to warn the "unique email address" flag is not set if you allow login by email address.

If there are multiple accounts with the same email address, which account is used?

if multiple accounts use the same email, it tries them (quietly) in turn until it succeeds - so the biggest risk is if multiple people share the same email and password, and their admin turns on this feature smile
