I'm not so sure about this. Linux uses this file only to correct bad
UTF-8 encoding or actual spelling errors and similar such things.

I think if you made a contribution while at verizon there's no reason
for it not to continue to appear so in the logs. Certainly we'd be
adding a tonne of admin overhead if we were to try and keep everyone's
address current, you've only scratched the surface here.

This one seems like a good idea.

Even apart from the above this one isn't necessarily correct, it would
(sometimes) signify something I did on my own time (e.g. for Debian
purposes) rather than at work.
