It's an interesting question.  I had the first dealing with it a couple 
of days ago.  A site called me, and wanted off the RBL.  Turned out it
was one of the sites that hosted a nameserver for a few days for Cyberpromo.
After the standard set of questions, I removed them - but I know that 
they are going to have a whole heap of trouble with the thousands of other 
sites that were blocking Cyberpromo.

Without a central registry, unblocking "bad" addresses is going to be a
huge job.
