I think it would be useful to take an inverse approach.

1. Allow access to only those sites that are present in the ICRA
manifest.(one can modify PB to do the checking)

2. Periodically, PB will contact ICRA to obtain an update (much like virus
definitions for antivirus)

Some might see (1) as too restrictive, but presumably this is to protect
kids from online predators and whatnots, better safe than sorry.

Just a thought.
