Gravatar now offers profiles that are publicly visible. Let's say I have entered some info in my profile. Let's also say I have two email addresses, email1 and email2, registered with Gravatar but with different avatar images. Is there any way someone (other than Gravatar/Wordpress itself) who knows my email1 address or the corresponding Gravatar URL find my public profile, email2 address, or the corresponding Gravatar URL, or otherwise associate email1 with any of those things?

At first glance, it seems like this would not be possible without access to my Gravatar account. (This is, of course, assuming that I've not done anything obvious like put that email address on my public profile, or the email is [mygravatarusername]@[somedomain].com or something like that.) However, I wanted to get some other opinions in case I've overlooked something.
