It's getting more common these days, companies want their address to end
up in git but it's not so good for upstream mail for whatever reason
(historically a lot of it has been Exchange related, though that's not
the case for me).  It's more noticable for people applying patches than
for people sending them.

Sure, but if you're going to use one I'd expect the MAINTAINERS address
to win - I did have someone the other day using my Wolfson address still
since they were going off signoffs and the thing they were working on
wasn't that actively developed.
