Yes, it's limiting, and the limitation was probably deliberate.
Because the confirmation page is viewable by just about anybody,
providing a customizable template would require non-trivial thought
about its security.

Feel free to contribute styling.  Functionality we do well.  But we
aren't designers ourselves, and we can't afford to hire good ones out
of the revenue we receive from Mailman ($0).

If you lack the time (or perhaps skills) to contribute directly, you
can definitely help by telling us more about your requirements.  This
probably won't help Mailman 2 much (for the reasons Mark gave), but
would be very useful for Mailman 3.

There are some students being funded by Google Summer of Code to do
work on Mailman 3 UI.  If you would like to discuss your requirements
with them (at any level of formality), let me know and I'll put you in
touch with them.[1]


[1]  I'm uncomfortable posting more detailed information because
Google is quite sticky about privacy, and because their projects are
not being directly supervised by Mailman.  We're just consulting on
the Mailman side of their things.  They'd be doing us a favor outside
of their Google internships.
