Please no! It's a very interesting idea, but will take up more disc space.
The main reason I think it would not work is that some people grab e-mail
addresses from the members pages for legitimate reasons. For example, a
program I run grabs members pages from distributed.net, processes them
and sends it out to members. It'd be almost impossible to do this if all
the addresses were GIFs.
All the best,
