List-Unsubscribe: the word 'unsubscribe' in a single line as the message text body.
List-Archive: <http://ops.ietf.org/lists/namedroppers/>

The only reason is the IETF convention. I don't expect namedroppers to disappear: when dnsext is finally clubbed to death, we can revive the namedroppers list. But I'm willing to ask the secretariat for an exception if people feel strongly.
