While you are right that it is to some extent a self-made problem, I am not convinced that requiring additional addresses to be published will stop people from copying the other addresses they already send e-mail to. This is down to my perception of human nature and not to the technical merit of the proposal for an IRT object or an abuse-c address or any other way of providing the information.
