You don't need to agree on something - it's already possible to apply
automated checks to a DNSBL that detect all known methods of shutting
it down.
You could also say if it returns anything outside of then it's dead - that would stop it the moment it is wildcarded.

In any case the software writers would need to be persuaded to alter it in code.
