It's only useful if you want to make troubleshooting problems more 
difficult and require remote parties to contact you off-net. 
Conditionals for such blocks are more difficult (abuse at domain 
whitelisted isn't enough, you have to have a specific @domain which the 
filters don't apply to).

I agree that smaller networks are the ones more likely to participate in 
such things.
