So the feature sends out one email per watchlist edit?

If so, I can imagine a few users finding themselves with hundreds of
emails before they next checked their mail and saw any opportunity to
switch it off.

Could a site banner be put up just to let users know it's there,
perhaps with a link to a page of explanation about what it does and
how to switch it on? Sounds better to me than risking potential
surprise email barrages.
