Yes, all legitimate domains and redirection services, content
peering networks, etc. should be whitelisted, at least for use
in SURBLs (i.e. other people may have differing uses).

We want to make sure any mostly legitimate domains stay off the
blacklists.  Preventing FPs should be a top priority along with
handling spam domains.
