  The only situations where the inability to unsub would be acceptable,
as far as I can see, are situations where the list admin has some kind
of authorization to force the list members to be subscribed.  So
therefore, wouldn't it make sense that the consequences of breaking the
rule of said authorization be the only restriction you'd need?

  To put it in English, "Unsubscribe from this staff list and you're
fired."  :p
