I agree it increases your chances, but it's not a bulletproof solution either. And over time, any such guarantee you do manage to eke out could easily (and perhaps is likely to) erode.

Right. If there's some value here, it would be a "clueless" service instead of
a "drop" service. Ie, "they say they know what they're doing, but don't". But
even that runs afoul of proving a negative because if the listed domain ever
screwed up for any reason, the "clueless" list could latch on to that and never
let go... how is it to know that the transgression has been remediated?
