Brainstorming:
Sounds to me like something a mailing list software is doing. I can 
imagine subscribing everybody to a dedicated (pseudo) mailing list. 
Periodic pings are sent to the list and we let the mailing list software 
track bounces.

BTW, how about concentrating the handling of all subscriptions to a 
separate mailing list (in order not to overload debian-www). The alioth 
webwml group could be used to host all these lists and mailman should be 
able to handle my idea above.

Kind regards,
Andrei
