That is again, not true.
Senderbase's listings don't correlate to any public information so it's pretty much impossible to pro-actively protect ourselves from having our IPs set to poor.
I.e. when Senderbase assigns IPs to poor, those same IPs aren't listed on any RBLs or anything.
They operate in a vacuum where there is no visibility into why they do anything. Unlike organizations like Spamhaus where you know exactly why IPs are listed.

If it was industry-wide standard practice that just notifying a provider resulted in something being done, we'd not need things like Senderbase, which is after all basically a list of people who don't take action when notified...
