FYI, as an admittedly edge case, I have built a number of (related) sites
where a unique (or even any) email address is not guaranteed.

These are sites for schools to use in class. In some schools, a class will
have one email address for all students (especially the younger ones), or
they may have none, or they may block external email like hotmail. I can
tell you it's no fun getting WordPress to play nicely in those
