Welcome to the USA, Land of a thousand startup ISP's.
They decline for a couple of reasons:

	- They don't have DNS running internally
	- They perceive the EP node to be "outside" their domain
	- They don't know/care
	- A default is provided.

Now I will agree that the forward mapping is not a necessary
technical precondition, there is a need to the reverse mapping.
That mapping needs a name.
