Contacts are not party names nor identifiers

There seems to be a mess now with Issue 7106: Search party also on contact mechanism names - Tryton issue tracker

Contacts are not identifiers.

For example, we have numerous clients and suppliers with an email address ending with
but only one supplier ‘Orange SA’.

But when entering an invoice for Orange it is difficult now to find the supplier 'cause it is not returned in the initial viewable list!

Please revert.

If aliases or abbreviations need to be added, simply creating an anonymous identifier with the value works just fine.

Instead of forcing us to patch out this regression, it would be more friendly to make the inclusion of party contacts as identifiers configurable – but certainly not by default which is unintuitive to any but novices.
