The bad_image_list provides a built-in exception mechanism. See the second line
in the file, and the "except on [article]" text that follows it:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Bad_image_list

The files without exceptions listed there, ie. not used anywhere on Enwiki, are
indeed potentially used on other projects. Most or all of those files are
stored on Commons.
