I''d suggest reducing their reputation rankings, as reported by SpamHous and their kin. That's not to say that "Spamhaus and their kin must", although that would be one implementation. Another would be to include them also some other ranking mechanism in the analysis, and reduce the reputation of such sites in the implied alternative.

Another would be to include such rankings in their calculations of whom to accept as customers - BGP or otherwise - and if some AS seems to accept such as customers, not accept them. I imagine they do, to some extent, but this could be followed up more closely.
