Subscribers would need a good reason to unsubscribe (if they ever will). It
is easier to just skip a subscribed-to feed that keeps updating. Removal is
done actively and people are lazy or reluctant, so don't be alarmed. Many
feeds that I subscribed to are shaded (hidden in deeper levels of the tree)
so I don't read them unless I have a good reason to do so.
