Then it should not be described as such.
How does "To unsubscribe: http://foo.bar/" imply look for archives here?

Thanks for the pointer. I usually don't waste screen space looking at
the header, although I will earmark it as a potential source of useful
info. If I were looking for the archives, I would just google for it.

So the unsubscribe sig reduces list noise by providing an unsubscribe
pointer for newbies.
Another source of list noise is from newbies that ask "where are the
archives" and those who ask common questions that were asked/answered
many times before. Perhaps an archive sig pointer that is not buried in
a header would help reduce this noise.
