I don't want to do that.  I do want the list admin to be able send  
out invites, for example.

I think I will just have to either leave things as they are or modify  
the code.  Probably the easiest modification would simply be to  
remove the "subscribe" option from the mass subscription page.  Of  
course someone could work around that by sending a properly crafted  
HTTP POST, but those aren't the sorts of list-admins I'm worried about.
