Because a site's false and true positives are as unique as the site's
views about excessive false positives and sufficent true positives, I
wouldn't use someone else's counts or detailed data as more than vague

If the override policy for a response policy zone is set to "passthru",
then hits are only logged.  For example,
    response-policy { zone "rpz.example.com" policy passthru; };
would log hits by that policy zone in the "rpz" logging category but
not change responses from the DNS server.  One might use those log
entries to consider policy zone's false and true positives before
making the zone effective.
