I think you should ask Jorge whether the disambiguation factor matters - 
he's the lawyer, unlike all the armchair occupants around here. I don't 
see any other reason to retain them.

Diving straight into armchairing myself, I'll just note that under EU 
data privacy laws, it's illegal to collect personal info for which you 
have no legitimate purpose - so if we never use those emails for 
anything, we shouldn't collect them.

I'm all in favour of making things simpler if we can.

(The hypothetical subpoena could, in theory, lead to me standing in a 
courtroom looking at a blue sheet copy and being asked "is this your 
handwriting", and having to stammer "maybe"..... :-)
