The problem is that the wildcarded domains coming from BE don't
look like resolvable domains that can be put into an RBL.  They
look like:

What I think John is asking for in essence is a version of
BigEvil.cf with the non-wildcarded domains removed, i.e. a subset
of the original ruleset with *only* the wildcarded domains.
