sbl is not really intended to be used with message body URI
checkers like SpamCopURI or urirhsbl, but it may get a few
hits since I think Spamhaus may include a few spam URI domains
in SBL.  But the results will probably not be too useful or
productive, since it's not an intended use of sbl.spamhaus.org.

Another unintended use is to check SURBLs against message headers
(envelope senders, etc.).  That too reportedly produces a few
hits, but the results are not too overwhelming, given that most
of the entries in SURBLs will match message bodies significantly

Perhaps Bill can explain in more detail what his results above
