After talking with dkg on IRC, I realized my concerns were overblown:
autocrypt actually strips out the other identities, so i'm not divulging
more than already present in the mail (apart from the public key
material itself of course).

So I've reverted this.

One of the things the Web teaches us is that everything is connected
(hyperlinks) and we all should work together (standards). Too often
school teaches us that everything is separate (many different
'subjects') and that we should all work alone.  - Aaron Swartz
