 From my eval:

- JP & SC & AB have been 0 FP for me.

- OB more FPs than expected - the direct whitelisting site has been a 
godsend. OB guys very fast.

- WS 0 FPs since last clean up. (as FP are not always made pubic its 
hard to say)

- SC & AB are very slow in publishing new data - JP & WS beat them all

This would mean less subzones to reduce DNS queries overall allowing 
faster SA processing

my vote: merge JP,SC,AB. - "safe.surb.org"
