Pseudonymity in Bugzilla

I need to create a Bugzilla instance where all the users are
pseudonymous. Specifically, therefore, I need to avoid anyone finding
out anyone else's real email address, while still retaining those
addresses to send bugmail. (I can set their real names to something
pseudonymous; if they want to de-cloak themselves explicitly, that's up
to them.)

Idea 1 is to alter the "email_filter" function in Bugzilla/ to
output a fake email address, in the same way that it currently outputs
only the localpart if the user is not logged in. If this filter is used
consistently throughout the templates, that should achieve my goal.

Will that work, or is there something I've missed?
