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.
