Unless I'm misunderstanding, the OP doesn't want to have to approve 
subscriptions.  He wants to be able to send out invitations, which 
would then be confirmed by the subscriber.  But he doesn't want the 
subscriber to be able to take any kind of action that would result in 
an invitation being sent -- invitations should only be sent as a 
result of direct manual action from the List Owner(s) or Moderator(s).

That is a subtle difference, and so far as I know this is not one 
that Mailman is currently able to resolve.
