I am pursuing this line as well... This particular ISP won't set rDNS
to correspond to a dyndns.org domain, but if I purchase my own
"official" domain and show them the RIPE records they will set rDNS.
So I'm currently looking into getting a pukka domain through an agency
which will proxy the contact information (so as not to blurge my
postal address all over the WWW) without charging a fortune for it.
There are a vast number of possible domain name registration agencies,
so the research isn't exactly speedy :-)
