Alternately, you could use ^ to go to the server buffer, press RET on
your nnml: server, and subscribe to mail.misc from there.

!!!  'Q' will generally exit the current context without saving
changes without doing anything so drastic as rebooting your machine.
Many things you can also undo with normal Emacs C-_; I think changing
group state (subscribe/unsubscribe/kill) should be quite undoable.  (A
couple of things, notably C-u G DEL to destroy an nnml group and all
of its contents, are pretty permanent and immediate.)
