This may be due to misuse of DNSxL technology or other reputation

I agree -- both with the notion that much of this is due to misuse
of the technology and that significant educational effort is needed.
That effort has been underway for over a decade, and some of the people
commenting here (as well as the document's author) have been a large
part of it. This document may thus in one sense be seen as an adjunct
to those efforts, since it's a BCP for *operating* DNSBLs -- adoption
of which will complement education directed at those *using* DNSBLs.
(And as Chris alluded to briefly, perhaps a second BCP which concerns
itself with that second audience would be a good idea.)
