There is nothing ill advised about having the information.  There is 
unfortunately a potential gotcha if the information is formatted as 
"<>" inside of the friendly name / double quoted.

The problem comes from over zealous DMARC implementations that look 
inside the friendly name / double quoted portion in addition to the 
actual email address.

I recommend that people format the information differently so that it 
does not appear as an actual email address to such questionable DMARC 
implementations.  E.g. "user at".

Thus the information is there for the end user to utilize with much less 
risk of running afoul of over zealous DMARC implementations. 
Implementations which, as I understand it, go against the DMARC standard.
