I would still be participating.

Correct. But people need to be on HTMLWG to participate in surveys.

The problem is not client-side. Messages I had already seen (using the other 
methods W3C kindly provides) would still be sent to me, even if using a 
different client.

Currently, unsubscribing from the public-html list removes oneself from 
HTMLWG. I would like to continue as an HTMLWG Participant after 
unsubscribing from the public-html list.

This facility may be useful for other WG's with a list which has a web 
interface. It need not be done as a hack. Again, I apologise that I cannot 
provide a patch to solve this.
