Sure. Is there any point in reinventing a wheel?  Multiple different
silo'd communities have ever been useful - and also the biggest
stumbling block for coordination.

Clearinghouses at a national level aren't particularly new either -
the aussie telecom regulator ACMA set one up for spam / security
reports with various local service providers and its been doing just
fine for the past few years.   At a basic level, aggregating +
anonymizing feeds from various data sources and sending alerts to
SPs.. and cooperation only builds upwards from there.
