The problem is that I suspect it makes it much harder for a person to find their user account and get themselves unsubscribed. Without the roster, they have to know the address they're subscribed with to get anywhere. And lots of people don't.
Do users actually look themselves up? To be blunt about it, as far as I can tell, they simply email the admin and say "help me!". Is this a real issue any more? Not to me, it's not. The exposure risk is worth a couple of extra help requests to the admin -- and I doubt any significant group of users actually look themselves up any more.
