Security threats aren't limited to JavaScript. It could be an entirely
static site which is still worth blocking (see phishing). 

Or it's possible that the registration is new enough that it's blocked just
for that reason - although at a month old, it should be beyond that window.
Or the site hasn't been categorised ("unknown") which is enough to block
for an especially Evil Firewall Admin[0]. 

0: I may be an Evil Firewall Admin, but I'm not an especially EFA.
