*shrug* Sounds good to me.

Very easily by pointing you to the uproar and lengthy discussion the last (and
first) time a new DNSBL has been pushed with a rule update because it was added
to the sandboxes.
The conclusion of the discussion was clear -- DNSBLs MUST NOT be introduced via
the update channel.
Moreover, since the planned next version will be 3.4, discussing potential
inclusion in a 3.3.x micro version release is a moot point.

Would that not bias the re-scoring, and thus negatively impact 3.3?
