New McAfee Maintained list?

I know this is a reach, but is it possible to request a new McAfee Maintained list be created for known good user agents?  We'd like to implement a block on all random/malware user agents that make calls out to the net and was curious if McAfee had the data available to create such a list.

There is a list here:

Hi Bmertel,

While this is possible, it could prove unsuccessful (for this situation).

Allowing only good user-agents could prove problematic. For example, I have seen Flash player, or java, not include a user-agent at all. You will also have issues with transparent setups for SSL sites.

In addition to this, MWG Anti-Malware already does block known bad user-agents "funwebproducts".

Best,

Jon

Thanks for the replies.  There would be certain instances that this could be problematic, we're just looking for all angles to block malicious traffic.
