The email address is not displayed in the UI, it's used to build a URL.
The URL itself is not displayed in the UI, only its link is. Maybe
"never see" is more exact than "nor access". In my sentence above, I
really meant that we should never display the full email address, not
that it can never be used.

Unrelated to your question, I always thought it was a bad idea to
include these mailto: links for commenters. I hate when someone writes
to me directly to ask questions (generally, support questions related to
the bug). I would much prefer that questions remains in the bug itself
or be moved to the support mailing-list.
