Look.  You can all pretend that I can use leverage with my ISP but
I can't.  I don't pay the bills. I don't have any pull with the people
that pay the bills.  The people that pay the bills don't try to run
a mail server there.  The people that pay the bills don't want to 
pay the extra $X00.00/month in order to have access to the outgoing
mail relay.  

It's not like I'm a little kiddie trying to run my mail server on
a home broadband connection or anything.  This is in a colocation 
facility next to an auto manufacturers website on 100mbit/s of 
pipe... My mail server is configured correctly and never sends out
spam.  Requiring rDNS is like requiring me to run authd before 
you'll accept mail from me.
