This is an impossible task.

Where would you start? Where would you end? And if you put a provider on this list how can you make sure that he doesn't want to add a domain someday?

They still always have root@, webmaster@, ...
It´s just a protection against their abuse@provider contacts, which they normally don´t want to go such emails anyway.

You think it's worth the effort? Were there any complains?

If you limit it to addresses starting with abuse@ it would be alright for me, but I would give it low priority if this hasn't been abused yet.

Yes, there were specific abuses, and specific requests from the providers to have their email addresses blocked, which are included in all whois entries of their customers.

administrator   ~0000711 seems to have been abused as well now

Registrars should be able to use their own email addresses to register their websites too. This blacklist is pointless.
