TL;DR: the local part of mailing list subscription confirmation addresses 
formed of:

  mailing-list-name "+confsub-" 16-random-hex "-" sender-address

can get very long, especially if sender-address is long. However, RFC limits it 
at 64 characters.

So I'm suggesting to drop the sender-address part from this address, since it 
is stored in the related file anyway and the atomic file creation secures the 
random from collisions anyway.
