Can you quantify that objection? Ie. can you explain what about it
disturbs you?

It would seem to me to make automated unsubscriptions extremely simple on
the part of the MUA, especially considering that most modern MTAs (Pine,
Mutt, nearly every graphical client, etc) have support for at least
parsing URLs at this point. Hence, getting this kind of feature to an
easy-to-use point in MUAs should be extremely simple.

But maybe someone has a better way of representing it (without inventing a
new notation standard) such that it's still machine-parsable?
