You can solve that problem by adding a freeform UID to the key (an UID
with your name on it, but without any email address). If people sign it,
you can revoke the UIDs bound to email addresses, and add new UIDs for
new email addresses, without losing the old signatures (as long as you
don't revoke the freeform UID). But sometimes people will refuse to sign
an UID without an email address. Anyway, most of time, people won't even
know they can chose what UIDs to sign...
