milter-link works on content, not the connection nor envelope. In the
month or so I've been using it prior to its release, I've not had one
false-positive and I tested it with the aid of someone's spam trap so it
was stressed tested and checked against a wide variety of input (the
only false-positives during initial development were do to coding
errors), but essentially the three URI BLs consulted have never caused
me any grief.
The attached graph shows the spam trap activity in the last 24 hours. It
compares DNSBL and URI BL. rejections.

True. But milter-link doesn't do anything really fancy yet. Version 0.2
that I'm working on now identifies a certain class of spam (pump & dump
stock spam appearing as a .gif) through its MIME structure.
