This seems to be fundamentally wrong in the fact that 
once something is unblocked it cannot be blocked.

For instance, suppose Site.Blocklist-MoinMaster blocks 
something and the Site.Blocklist-Farm unblocks it, then
then local wiki Site.Blocklist cannot block (or re-block) 
it.  A local wiki might have a contextual reason to block 
something that might not be blocked for a farm.

I would suggest processing the these 5 "default" 
block/unblock lists in this order:

  Site.Blocklist-Chongqed   ($FarmD/shared.d)
  Site.Blocklist-MoinMaster ($FarmD/shared.d)
  Site.Blocklist-PmWiki     ($FarmD/shared.d)
  Site.Blocklist-Farm       ($FarmD/shared.d)
  Site.Blocklist            (./wiki.d)
