It should be noted that the policy contested in this bug does not cause FPs. It
does cause FNs for a small number of users (where other attempts to rectify an
unaccepted situation failed). On the other hand, removing the rules will lead
to a higher risk of FPs for 99.something % of users.

Well established based on http://www.chaosreigns.com/dnswl/. While the stats
have a lot of fluctuation which makes it sometimes hard to interpret individual
data points, it generally shows the "usefulness" of dnswl.org rules/data.
