First I'd like to know what "dialup" includes means for you.

There are apparently a number of ISPs that do well in providing an IP
pipe, but suck big rocks when it comes to administering a mail server.
This number will certainly grow as more and more infrastructure

What are the problems for static IP dialups?

You must not forget the users. If Debian comes to the consensus that
DUL is a Good Thing, this affects users, too. All MTA packages should
probably come with a big fat warning that you should use a relay if
your IP is dynamic.
