That's another excellent argument.  Barring caching, which not
all resolvers do, why do a gazillion DNS lookups on yahoo.com,
w3.org, etc. when we already know they're whitehats?

Hard coding small, local exclusion lists into uridnsbl_skip_domain
and whitelist_spamcop_uri is probably a better solution.
