Is it necessarily a good idea to combine lists like ws and be into a single 
entity when the sources of information are different ? (One comes from 
Bill, one comes from Chris) What policies of inclusion and removal do they 
each have ?

Say that a legitimate domain were somehow blocked, how would an end user 
know if it was Bill's data or Chris's that actually had it listed, to try 
and get it removed ? Etc...

So from a technical point of view, fine no problem, but I wonder a bit 
about compatibility of listing policies etc..
