This is a brilliant idea and I fully agree. It would be the best 
trade-off between ensuring that there will be no major disruptions and 
not requiring too much effort on Oracle side.

I personally depend on my account for many activities 
and losing my alias would effectively disconnect me from the project and 
require that I resubscribe to more than fifty mailing lists; but more 
than my personal case (if the alias goes away I'll notice it soon and 
I'll know what to do) dropping the aliases without notice or without 
offering an opt-in replacement would be problematic for those who are 
not following this list or who are still waiting on the sidelines.
