So I would need to find out which networks you would have classified
as "golden" and use those as sources for my DDoS.

Either I can achieve DoS with S/RTBH, or I can abuse the "golden
networks" to circumvent S/RTBH.

As far as I see it S/RTBH is in no way a solution against smart
attackers, of course it does help against all the kiddie attacks out
