I don't think we should use a well-known privacy list for this.

Names of privacy lists are strings a privacy list client will display to
users. Using a well-known name here is a big internationalization bug.

I still think that blocklists should modify the default list, which is
the list, that is active as long as the client does not select another
privacy list for the session.
