*Trusted* body ? What the hell ? Why you even need any trusted body ?
It's possible to create 1000 lists with untrusted bodies (including one nationa-wide) where only md5 hashes are stored. Generated locally, obviously. With 100% open-sourced program.
Then anyone can use any such database to check is address if there but nobody can harvest anything from there: e-mail adresses were never actually submitted to such databases!
Nobody can misuse information they do not have in first place - this eliminates needs for trust...
