This is an absolutely necessary change to make. It makes me hesitant to use any of my allocated addresses, because I can never be certain that it will always be useful and relevant in the future.
Anonymous is right about the security problem posed by reusing addresses; however, there are virtually an infinite number of possible character combinations for creating new addresses. Therefore, I propose some sort of rating system to estimate the probable demand of particular addresses. Put more simply, each Proton user might have an allocated measure of how much probable demand is used. If a user wants firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, etc., choosing these popular addresses should severely limit that user's ability to keep changing addresses and wasting popular ones. On the other hand, if a user wants dd223DV4afvfirstname.lastname@example.org, that counts much less against the demand allocation, and therefore has the ability to change addresses frequently. Some sort of "address recycling credits" should be part of a PM subscription. That's my half-baked idea, anyway.
