Funny, I just thought the same thing after reading your message.

Don't you think standards are important? Properly configured DNS
has both forward-lookup A records and reverse-lookup PTR records.
We shouldn't encourage anyone to compromise on that, because
it is not difficult to configure.

In these days of spam, hacker attacks etc we don't need any
less audit trail, I'm sure you'll agree.
