You really should update to the latest version of the API.

Then, read the merge var docs for listSubscribe:
http://apidocs.mailchimp.com/api/rtfm/listsubscribe.func.php

That probably worked fine in 1.1, but if not you'll definitely need to upgrade.

If we look at the API doc -  http://apidocs.mailchimp.com/api/1.1/listupdatemember.func.php

It claims that we can "Edit the email address, merge fields, and interest groups for a list member"

But looks like it cannot allow us to updated the email address of an existing subscriber.

Because - it has parameter for the  Current Email address of the member. 
But we do not have a parameter for the Updated Email address of the member.

So if a subscriber's email address changes, looks like, we had to subscribe that person again as a new record to the list .
Is that correct. 

Thanks in advance
