I think the key is the phrase "Servers which are not known to send email
normally". If this is determined carefully, then there might not be a
problem. However, if not having any statistics on record is sufficient to
being considered a no-mail server, then I think we're in trouble.
My gut instinct is that this is an unneeded escalation. The Spamcop
blocking list so far was easily defended from critics because it was an
automated system with a clear set of rules with an appeals process.
But now, we've got blocking of /24 nets and soon "indefinite" listings.
Next step: SPEWS and all the legal entanglements that entails...
