Is there any worldwide rule that forbid that?

I do not deal with it.  :-)

It is not users job to make sure no address ever appears in mail
(otherwise you can be sure that it will never come to an end) it's
computer task to avoid it. 

I do not really think it would be so complicated to write a regexp
that modify all the addresses in a mail that is not understandable
with by robot (maybe even just replace the address by a link to a page
that requires some form of login or whatever), with damaging perl
