Hmm... I noticed that all links on the page are approved at once. That 
behaviour surprised me a bit to be honest, although I'm not sure it's 
necessarily bad.

In addition, I think that the page being shown when you do
should list what sites are being approved, so you don't accidentally 
approve links.

Oh, sorry about that... obviously it's been a while since I used that.

Ok, I see. If I understand this correctly (and my brain is fuzzy because 
of a cold), we are actually approving domains rather than URIs?

Maybe the name should reflect this? (i.e. Main.ApprovedDomains)

I also wonder if this module is documented somewhere?
