You seem to think that customers give ISPs a choice. The fact is,
customers scream about the 50-90% spam that hits their mailbox and want
it gone at any cost. Whitelisting is easy, and done when requested.
Customers are happy.
The stance now stands, if you can't afford a static IP address to
properly run a mail server, then use a smart host. If a server isn't
static, then the IP address can't be trusted or the next guy at that IP
address will be a spammer. Most places will whitelist based on email
address or vanity domain if asked.
