Yes, plz! ;)

Why no? :) I mean, personally I'd add it right away but I think what
possibly could be "good" would be a counter (config option) - e.g.
after 10 times using an address it creates a "full" record - before it
is hidden. People who want to skip that set it to 0. This could be
really nice, but it also increases the DB/addressbook size if you are
a frequent mailer or if you run an install for many people.

I am not saying gigs of data, but people should be aware of that. :)
