OT: Dynamically updating /etc/mail/access

I'm including the spamassassin list in this because I think it is
relevant there as well. Has anyone thought about starting some kind of
distributed (like razor and dcc) or community (like spamassassin) based
effort to build a near real time access list like this? Obviously this
list doesn't catch everything. If there was a way to submit new items
for the list to be reviewed and added by a large group of users, or
automatically tested and added in some cases, I think it could be even
more effective. Not that I'm unhappy with 70-80% of spam getting blocked
by the current access list at my site, but more is always better.
