Because I believe it's not a bug but a feature. It can even help to be
able to unsubscribe someone else who has troubles unsubscribing alone.

And it's your problem if you don't read carefully the mail that you
received at your own address (IIRC, they have no special PTS like header
and thus shouldn't be filtered out from normal e-mail).

BTW, right now we have no other tool to unsubscribe people (even people
whose email doesn't work anymore) so if you want this feature to be
implemented you probably should work to solve the other related problems
before. :-)
