We had this discussion in Sweden a couple years back, in the operator
forum, and we more or less joked that wildcards with exception was
the only acceptable opt-out, where a domain holder might submit a
domain name and state "only those email accounts matched by "*"
who opt out of my wildcard opt-out may be sent spam". At the time
I was working at the swedish TLD registry and immediately offered
"*.se" as wildcard, since that was "my domain". ;-)  

We still have no such register. Or any register.
