But it doesn't have a mechanism to specify the address to remove... So in
the instructions, we have to describe one method, then switch gears
massively and describe a completely different method. The end result would
seem to be more confusion. A separate address for zubscription would seem
to have the additional problem of trying to zubscribe spammers to your list
when they misdirect mail to it.

Which one? We already have the proposed list-header standard, which makes
this irrelevant. Hopefully we won't get several overlapping standards;
it's hard enough keeping up with several moving targets. We don't need any
more, especially if they conflict.
Not that I think this is a bad idea, just that it needs to be thought out
just a bit more.
