Profile username validation on meetup application form

We often receive meetup applications that contain invalid or non-existent WordPress.org usernames. These all come from the application form here: https://central.wordcamp.org/meetup-organizer-application/

It would be great if we could add some validation on that form that checks if the username exists (simply checking if the profile URL exists should be sufficient) and then, if it does not, prevents submission and directs the applicant to create a profile first.
