If a "spammer" is going to such trouble, I imagine he/she would also do
things like not have -leave/unsubscribe aliases, require approval to
unsubscribe, sync the list periodically with an external source, etc. 

I think you're better off treating the source as you would any other
spammer: complain to his/her provider, report to blocklist(s), block /
filter messages from the source, and the like.
