I have a question.  Is this an abuse problem?  some ISPs require their domain
to be in the rdns in an effort to herd abuse reports to the correct org.
Is this generally considered useless?  Is it generally considered OK to
hand relatively untrusted users the keys to their own rdns?  

(I'm forcing my own customers to have a rdns of
for several months, Much to the chagrin of many presumably innocent and 
legitimate customers. )
