Absolutely. This is a key address-non-reuse case we really need to
solve. Miner payouts, BitPay salary payouts, etc. all use a
statically provided, manually changed address.
Rotating through multiple outputs is a stopgap -- but IMO a useful
one. HD wallets will solve this in a better way, but existing randkey
systems will be around for a long time.
