 Just noting that "blocklist" is indeed used in other contexts in core,
 e.g. in `js/_enqueues/wp/editor/base.js`. While the context should be

 * Do we also want to rename the "Comment Blocklist" UI option, previously
 renamed in [46820]?
 * While we're at it, instead of renaming `wp_blocklist_check()` to

 also be consistent with `wp_check_comment_flood()` and
