I would not like _one_ list as it could be single point of failure. E.g. someone could be
threatened or required by a court to remove a site from the white-list.

Also it could lead to discussions attacked by censorship being concentrated on a few
white-listed servers.

When there is a new development in e.g., Iran and new free-speech blogs appearing every
day, these blogs should be accessible though TOR from day one.
