I've never seen an email client do this (which doesn't mean I claim it
doesn't happen). I believe doing so violates the relevant RFCs. The
best we can do is best effort. If some ignoramus is using a
non-standard mail reader, I feel no obligation to extend myself to
handle their situation. Especially as I would find putting the
unsubscribe notice at the top of every email unacceptably obnoxious.

Gmail does that.
