This would be somewhat complex to do as currently unlike for a
subscription request waiting confirmation from the user, there is no
entry in the list's pending database and thus no confirmation token for
a subscription request waiting admin approval. Not only that, but there
is currently no pending record type for a subscription request waiting
admin approval.

All these things would have to be addressed.
