It would be possible to implement this. I don't have time to do it
right now.....

As you pointed out, I think it suffers from some administrative problems.
Getting admins to update their local domain list could be hard.

But for me, an important problem is, how do you pevent abuse?

It is conceivable that ISP-A could put a competitor's domain (ISP-B)
in his list, and then return blank pages, or "connection refused"
error messages for the competitors web site.
