True.  To some degree I think it's a reputation issue.  You could note
who's sent in what and who the purported sender site is and why it
should be whitelisted, and if others complain about spam from some
whitelisted blocks, well, we trust that submitter and everything else
they sent in that much less.  (I'd like to see reasons anyways; not
all of the current entries have them listed.)

Of course, spammers could just invent new addresses to use when
submitting their new entries, so previously unknown submitters perhaps
shouldn't be trusted much, maybe just big-ISP reps and people active
on this list, or something....
