That would be nice, if it was true. If you use the address anywhere, or if
the address is common words or names and even common names with some
numbers, it will likely get spam, if it's with a large ISP or email

They have that choice now. They're just too lazy to exercise that choice.
It's a simple matter to change email addreses. You just need some overlap
time to inform people you correspond with.

Email has never been a reliable means of communication. Anyone who depends
on it for business will lose money if they don't have an alternate means of
communication or backup email accounts. You can't predict a backhoe.
