Sure, but if we could all agree that 127.255.255.255 (or something) means that the BL has been shutdown then in the future this sort of issue could be mitigated.
If software were written so that receiving this would drop the BL from the list, then you would only get one query each time the software starts up -- even better would be that this response removes (or comments out) the blacklist from the config file so that it doesn't come back after a restart....
Yes, this doesn't fix Paul's problem (or anyone who setup a blacklist before this is standardized) and there is no way to enforce this, but it is bunch better than not doing anything...
That's why I think your best/only option is to attempt to misdirect them by pointing NS at . or unreachable space...effectively giving them someplace harmless to send their queries or to fail them without even having to send them.
