But that's an annoyance I can opt in to. Currently, if I don't care
about sponsorship control messages (which, right now, I don't) I have to
opt out, and filter them.

I don't like opt-out, opt-in is much friendlier. And as far as duplicate
messages count: no problem. I'll have context on the -requests list too,
and "summary" on -mentors. I think that's a great feature, rather than
an annoyance.
