In some cases notifications may be sent to multiple mailing lists.  For instance, changes to the tl forest are sent to compiler-dev, core-libs-dev, serviceability-dev, security-dev, and net-dev.  With the reduction in the number of team repos in JDK 9 particularly for client, the number of duplicate push notifications will increase.

That sounds like a good change to me; I think using option 1) for opt-in 
would be fine.
