Stop calendar notifications when via pages Edited

If you included a team calendar on a confluence page, e.g Team home page, you get added as a watcher via pages:watch via pages.png

Consequently, anyone watching this page will get an email notification every time the calendar is updated.

A use case that is annoying is when the calendar has different event types for different customers (10+) and your team is only interested in 1 or 2 customers. So there is a lot of notification noise when not is wanted.

Anyone who wants notifications can watch the calendar but should not get penalised for watching the page.

Is there any way to stop this?

I could not find a similar feature request.
