just so I get that straight: does that affect all instances of
subscriptions to non-existent mailboxes? If so that should definitely be
made an option only. I agree that we have more users complain about deleted
folders still showing up in the GUI of their client than there are people
who actually use that as a feature, but as long as section 6.3.6 of RFC

A server MAY validate the mailbox argument to SUBSCRIBE to verify
that it exists. However, it MUST NOT unilaterally remove an
existing mailbox name from the subscription list even if a mailbox
