The thing is, I don't think any TLD prescreens its registrants and 
limits domains to spammers only.  Anyone can buy one of the new 
domains, whether or not a spammer.

Certainly not a factor.  Most significant DNSBLs operate on the basis 
of spamtraps.  If a host is hitting a spamtrap, it will be listed; if 
not it will not be listed.  FCrDNS and other niceties are irrelevant.
The DNSBL knows that the traffic is spam, because a good spamtrap is 
an address which was never used.
