the link to confirm subscription is:

 (a) one-time 
 (b) accidental disclosure does not have a serious impact
     and recoverable (can unsubscribe)
 (c) misuse can be audited (web site, presumably, maintains
     log of IP address of requester)


So this is a positive use case for a "secret URI".
