[Snort-users] whitelist rule to 1 ip?

Sorry, it's early in the morning, but I'll run through the two polar opposites of blacklisting (suppression) and whitelisting of rules:
Blacklist - say I want to stop receiving alerts on sig_id 466 coming from 192.168.5.33; in the threshold file, I would put the following line:
suppress gen_id 1, sig_id 466, track by_dst, ip 192.168.5.33
Whitelist - say I only want to trigger alert 466 when it goes to 192.168.5.33; I would disable the alert (via pulledpork, so when I get rules updates it doesn't get re-enabled), and copy the contents over to my local.rules file, changing the destination from $HOME_NET to 192.168.5.33, so that the rule looked as follows:
alert icmp $EXTERNAL_NET any -> 192.168.5.33 any (msg:"ICMP L3retriever Ping"; icode:0; itype:8; content:"ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWABCDEFGHI"; depth:32; reference:arachnids,311; classtype:attempted-recon; sid:466; rev:5;)
I hope this is what you are asking; if not, let me know,

I did ask this a while ago but never got a response.
What is the correct way of white-listing a rule for a specific IP .
I know that your can suppress warnings of a rule to an IP using the threshold file, but is thee any way to completely whitelist a rule - to 1 IP only?
Any help on this will be appreciated.
