Can you state unequivocally that there are no present or future users,
developers, or other people who would legitimately mail debian.org
that use Chinanet?
If not, as I strongly suspect is the case, blocking such a wide swath
of ips [or any ip ranges in general] is not acceptable.
That being said, I personally see no reason not to use RBLs that
include such ips to increase the spamassassin score of messages... but
placement on RBLs should never be enough to cause a message to be get
a hard reject from Debian mailing lists or d.o.

a ajouter, mais quand il n'y a plus rien a retrancher.
(Perfection is apparently not achieved when nothing more can be added,
but when nothing else can be removed.)
