I do this for emails, I run greylisting, and if I get >x attempts over  
2 days and no emails have passed from that ip for 2weeks, they get put  
on the rbl. If the reverse dns for that ip changes, or a year passes,  
they are removed. It seems to work very well for me. Originally it was  
designed to keep the load off the greylisting database, and is  
currently running around 1.3million ip's
