RFC 2369 specifies a series of mail headers that contains exactly this information. It seems to be catching on, and we can further its acceptance by adopting it for ourselves. I found a copy at:

Examples of legal "unsubscribe" headers are shown below; there are equivalent subscribe/help/post/owner/archive headers defined as well.

     List-Unsubscribe: <>
     List-Unsubscribe: (Use this command to get off the list)
     List-Unsubscribe: <>
     List-Unsubscribe: <>,

Dan: Could you add these headers to the YDL lists? Maybe we can prevent a few of these messages. Thanks!
