Yep, but my point is that the first address may not be the address you're
looking for, or even the address the recipient wants you to use (I've seen spam
trap addresses among the key UIDs, for example).

Great :)

Personally I'd prefer that, and also not just a boolean for the first but an
integer to specify how many addresses are allowed from a key. Setting it to 1
would give you the feature you want. Setting it to 0 would mean to allow all
addresses as you may have guessed (which would be the default value).

Sounds it good to you?

Since I prefer the hidden option I'd say this refactoring is not necessary now.
