Yep, a special purpose component on each server can to the job of
distributing a verifiying black lists. This can be done also without the
whole agreement of the community and without any protocol extension.
All you need to do is to install a component handling blacklists and a
modified S2S component that checks them

Since this method of distribution will be very quick (in few minutes
imho any new spamming server can be notified to all the participants),
it could be possible to blacklist domains for limited times too (a day,
a week...)
