as long as customers who have business grade connections can get a PTR
that matches their A/AAAA i'm fine with having it default to "none".

from postconf(5):

	      Reject the request when 1) the client IP address->name
	      mapping fails, 2) the name->address mapping fails, or 3) the
	      name->address mapping does not match the client IP address.

IOW, the network operations community should work with the email server
operations community on this.
