I figured that malices don't come up on blight for one of two reasons.
First, we know that when two malices meet, they struggle until one
absorbs the other.  If there was a malice "seed" in an area that was
being stripped of its ground and being blighted, that "seed" would
be absorbed.
Second, a malice "seed" needs to absorb ground in order to develop.
There isn't any ground in a blighted area that would let that happen.

Gwynne: That means that the safest place to be is on rejuvenated blight.
Find a spot that's had a malice through, and then come back to life, and
you can at least be sure that you'll never have a malice hatching in your
back yard.
