That will push away some users from subscribing, and some existing users might leave the list, because they have no intention of creating a mageia account, for whatever reason.

What if we really do want to subscribe with an address not listed anywhere in the mageia account? Meaning, we intentionally do not want to use the email address listed in out account page?
I am one of them.

I have personally 100 -One Houndred- email aliases. Almost every time I need to register somewhere, I create a new alias. if the entity where I registered starts to misuse my address, I can easilly stop it by removing the alias.
It's also an easy way to sort incomming mail.
Many people do this.
