I do on my network (well, the ISP, not the IX). It makes complete sense.

Speaking of which, historically ISPs have been blocking TCP/135, TCP/445 
and a few others towards customers (at least that's what I know). TCP/25 
seems to be blocked as well. 

Why isn't UDP/53 blocked towards customers? I know historically there were 
resolvers that used UDP/53 as source port for queries, but is this the 
case nowadays? 

I know providers that have blocked UDP/53 towards customers as a 
countermeasure to the amplification attacks. As far as I heard, there were 
no customer complaints.
