It's a field of endeavour restriction.  It restricts the use by anyone 
who does not have internet email capability, or for privacy reasons is 
not prepared to send such email.  It also means the licence dies when 
the email address dies.

I'd also say that it tantamount to an additional licensing fee, as there 
is a time cost, and endorsements are certainly a thing of value in terms 
of being consideration for the licence.
