Yes, Theo proposed exactly such a thing for SA.  The top ones
should be fairly stable, and also offer the greatest reduction
in queries.

SpamCopURI comes with a local whitelist.  Eric could we ask you
to grab some of these, populate that list in future versions
and make it live?  The hooks are already there; we just need
to use them, and the top whitelist hits would be really useful.
