Gravatar does have a privacy policy: http://automattic.com/privacy/.

For example, Lloyd's publicly listed email address on Mozillians is lloyd at hilaiel.com which you can paste into http://onlinemd5.com/ and get 5810C72F30B0AB202823D8C26460C39D. Convert that to lowercase and it gives you his profile picture: https://secure.gravatar.com/avatar/5810c72f30b0ab202823d8c26460c39d

That's correct, that's how Gravatar is supposed to work. I think it'd
be a great fit for this UI!
