are protocols we could make more hostile to the use of email
addresses and other inappropriate strings as long-term

actually, as a community we have made it easier for
organisations to use email addresses as long term identifiers
with the advent of RRVS

I would categorize that work as "if one is going to do that, it
is better to get it right" rather than "making it easier" or
"encouraging it".  So I don't see any inconsistency between that
spec and a recommendation that use of email addresses as primary
personal identifiers is a bad idea.  YMMD.
