So if they really don't like being automatically subscribed, they will have been notified, and can unsubscribe if they'd like (but that has to be a pretty rare use case when they were just added as an editor). Making this change will eliminate quite a bit of confusion, while removing only a tiny amount of agency.
More or less what I was thinking. But I don't see how it removes any agency. If they get an email about a calendar to which they have been made an editor and auto-subscribed to, they still have the agency to unsubscribe. As you have correctly pointed out, this would be the rare exception. This is a far better scenario than the member who has never attended the training on the calendars, doesn't know to subscribe, and gets an email about a calendar that he can't see and therefore never uses!
As a software developer myself, two of my goals when developing are to minimize clicks by the user, and make the application intuitive (i.e. less confusing). This suggestion accomplishes both. It's a no-brainer.
