Counterintuitive Duniter concepts

Some concepts of Duniter v2 are counter intuitive. We might want to list them somewhere.

In Duniter v2, the public key / address is an AccountId for an account, but not for an identity which can change its “owner key”.

The identities are uniquely identified by an IdtyIndex (a number), but along the time, this index can then be associated to different AccountId.

An AccountId can not be used for multiple identities at the same time (we can not create an identity for and account which already has one).

The counterintuitive thing is that nothing prevents an AccountId to be used successively for different identities. The case where it could happen is when an identity is lost and erased from storage and an other identity is created for the same AccountId later on.
