Does Dovecot allow different clients to subscribe different subsets of IMAP folders?

I have a working Dovecot IMAP server (v. 2.2.9) where I have a single
user but a lot of folders (over 800 in total, hierarchically arranged,
about 50 of which are in active use.)
I have multiple clients (including k9Mail on Android and Thunderbird on
Linux and Windows). These clients all present a consistent subscription
to a single subset of the available folders .
What I'd like to be able to do is (somehow) allow different devices
(different email clients) to subscribe to a different subset of folders.
For example, I may want K9mail on my phone to be subscribed only to my
"main Inbox" - but for Thunderbird on Windows to also be subscribed to
active mailing-list folders.
Does Dovecot support such a mode of operation? If so, how do I configure
it? If not, what options are there to achieve the desired end result -
i.e. different devices/IMAP clients subscribed to different subsets of
the universe of folders available to a single user.
Version : 2.2.9
Configuration: See http://paste.ubuntu.com/11564807/
