It's no longer a blocker if it's blacklisted.

It looks like this code was copied straight from RFC 3174 [1]. I found a discussion [2] on debian-legal from a few years back that says that RFC texts are non-free (except for the first 1000 or so). A summary about copyright on RFC Editor [3] says that derivative works are allowed, but doesn't go into detail.
