Someone mentioned the problem with not owning a domain.  We could,
just as a suggestion, also propose the following alternative:
{email}/{branch}/{subbranch} (for example, address@hidden/foo/bar).
I think that's a better idea than inventing something else, mostly
because people are lazy and too many might resort to known examples,
