Are you sure that this is a good idea ?  After all SURBL is a
way to identify spam, and stupid spammers spamvertize "dead"
domains.  Or they create 1 domain per spam run and don't care
how fast it's "dead".  Rogue registrars like DirectI probably
have this procedure on auto-pilot, including their "we'll look
into this" delay tactics.
