I don't see the reasoning for doing this - it's more work (once-off setup vs 
getting every contributor to do stuff repeatedly) and less reliable 
(contributors may forget to add the magic address, or not know about this 

If there's sound justification for doing this though, I'm not averse to the 
change, but it needs to be sensible :)
