I name all my own machines regardless of what ISP I happen to be using or where they happen to be used. The ISP don’t care.

For example, Comcast (in the US) has not figured out how to securely and economically provide dynamic DNS for DHCP IPv6 PD users. But this is still in no way related to how one names machines. And one can publish machine names anywhere one can pay to have them published and many, like this email, that have no marginal cost as I boldly announce that my High Sierra test machine is named Mountain.

Cartel?  Or, just not ready to provide dynamic DNS? Or, just lazy.  What will you tell the judge in your suit?
