Isn't it obvious that these instructions should be in the message body instead?

Saying "read the headers" is obviously an approach that does not work.

Placing this info in the body is a waste of space. Further, when folks subscribe, they are sent a message on how to unsubscribe. If they don't keep track of that, it's not the list fault, and it's not the rest of the subscribers fault. Yet that is who pays for the wasted bandwidth.
