I'm a bit surprised by this. I've been doing this email-obscuring thing
as long as I'm with the project. My mentor did it also, and as far as I
can see it is done virtually by everyone, not just in doc commits, but
also in src (just picking some of the recent PRs committed to HEAD) and
I'm fairly sure it is also done in ports commits.

We probably should discuss this on a project level if there are reasons
not to do it (like you said, that spammers might not be driven away by
it) and find other (read: better) ways to balance the attribution of
contributors in commits and not making them spam-targets at the same time.
