A thing being missed here is this:

A telephone number does not have an obvious affinity with personal
intellectual-property-like information.  (402 332-XXXX is not obviously
a Northwest Bell-USWest-Quest telephone number, but at least two of them
are now served by Cox.  A person using a 917 NNX-XXXX number in has now
turned useful information into noise, but that is not quite the same thing.)

An email address that ends in irrevocably ties the address
user to the company Example and may in fact be affirmatively harmful
beyond the technical difficulty of implementation.

"Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to
take everything you have."

Remember:  The Ark was built by amateurs, the Titanic by professionals.

Requiescas in pace o email
Ex turpi causa non oritur actio
Eppure si rinfresca
