I don't think that it is a good idea at all.  The MUA should decide
which address to display and GnuPG provides all required information.

A MUA should even check that the From/Reply-to address matches one of
the user ID in the signature.  Without this it would be easy to trick
someone to reply (probably including quoted decrypted text) to a man
in the middle.
