Question on the registration of addresses from an assigned block

CICNet has several blocks of address from which we assign numbers.

Some of the sites to whom we have assigned numbers have requested
that the NIC register their DNS machines for inverse mapping of
the addresses.  The NIC recently sent the message below to one of those

My question is: Are other providers that have blocks they are assigning
		addresses out of removing those address from their own blocks
		(in the words of the NIC)?  In other words, is everyone sending
		to the NIC the information for the site that gets a specific
		address?  If the addresses are taken out of the block and
		assigned to the site, then it pretty much makes a moot point
		of the arguements about taking back address if a customer moves
		to another provider.
