Allow fine-grained control of when to use oEmbed for providers outside the explicit list

WordPress maintains a list of appvoed oEmbed providers. Developers are able to add or remove providers from this list.

WordPress also attempts to see if URLs, outside the provider list, support oEmbed - and if they do, it uses oEmbed for them. Unfortunately, this is currently an "all or nothing" appraoch. You can either agree to use all these random sites oEmbed, or none. I'd love to see a filter added to control whether or not a specific URL, outside the provider list, should use oEmbed.

For reference, our specific use case is we want to continue supporting oEmbed for the vast majority of sites that support it - but we've identified some specific domains that do a poor job of oEmbed, and we'd like to only turn it off for those domains.
