Yes, this seems like a nice way of tackling it, adding just 
a minimal amount to the existing interface.

But sticking with what we have, I think it is useful to
copy the address before hitting "New".

Answering a previous recommendation from the same thread:

Just starting to type "TeX... " will not give anything
unless you have already stored the address in the Address Book, 
or have sent an email to it previously.
To a newbie posting for the first time, this method is useless.
