[PLUG] reverse dns issues for ISP?

Is there any good reason why an ISP would not be willing to allow a user
with a static IP to have their reverse dns entries changed?  Even at the
offer of paying for the "Service"?

I even offered to just have them point the reverse dns to my ns, and I'll do
it from here, so it's about as non-labor-intensive as it can be.

I just want to know why this ISP I'm using is not willing to change a simple
dns entry.  I need it done for IRC purposes (primarily) so I don't have to
track down ops with access to get them to add me an entry on this IP, which
could take a month knowing these ops.

So, if anyone has any clues why this might be the case (so perhaps I can be
more sympathetic than I currently am), please share.  Also, if you have any
ideas of how to convince this ISP, let me know that too ;-)
