Hardly. Their investigation process of, "May I archive this list?"
Go check an external resource
Start a subscribe process and see if it tells me not to.
They're __already__ going to be attempting a subscribe, so nothing
changes in their work flow, data acquisition model, or decision making
process. The header check merely adds another function point to the
subscribe process, not a whole new discovery process.
