It wouldn't be an unsub-confirmation then, it would be a unsub-declination!

You'd then need to include a set of instructions for 'I don't want to be
unsubscribed' which would need to be followed within 24 hours to ensure
a malicious unsubscription wasn't actioned?

It seems to me that the current setup is fine.  I managed to follow the
current instruction a couple of weeks ago and it worked exactly as expected.
