Oh, so the idea is to never export email addresses in RDF, but only sha1
hashes of email addresses. To make this easier, the DB will contain a
mapping between emails sha1s.

Is it really necessary to hide them behind sha1 hashes? If the only
concern is anonymity, I'm not sure that we should hide email addresses.
After all, all the information is already public and easy to browse. See
for example.

Regarding URI-compatibility, wouldn't it be possible to use
lucas%40lucas-nussbaum.net instead of a hash?
