I think the idea is good only for brushing off ankle-biter threats. The
problem is that serious attackers can acquire new IPs at will through a
substantial pool of zombie nodes on consumer broadband networks, and so
deliberate attacks that come at you will almost certainly *not* be on
anyone's dark IP list.
