 Then ... when the next time we decide to soft-fork Bitcoin the

Re: [Bitcoin-development] Address Expiration to Prevent Reuse

 It appears that a limited-lifetime address, such as the fanciful

 address, could be made reuse-proof with bounded resource requirements, 

The core devs seem not to like ideas such as this because a transaction that 
was once valid can become invalid due to a chain reorganization.
