I don't know the answer to your question, but I do have some insight
about the reason for it.
The mail is constructed so that users can simply reply to the mail as
confirmation.. This is a fairly useful feature if, for instance,
they're in a text-only environment and don't want to have to retype
the link into a browser- assuming they even have access to one.
