OK. I'll repost there.

I think everyone's very used to this when signing up for or logging in
to sites. And keeping it seems to me to lead to increased complexity
both in the implementation and in the UI. Where and when does
emailsuffix get applied? If emails and logins are linked, which of them
in the database has the emailsuffix included? If one and not the other,
they cannot be assumed to be the same even when they are the same. And
so on.
