I'll take a guess - 'If we have decided that the folks using a domain name are 
being "naughty" (per our definition of naughty) then anyone operating a DNS 
server must implement a means by which folks trying to resolve that name to an 
IP address won't be able to do so.'

IE they think it will (help) block access to the naughtiness.
