The problem with fiddling with DNS records to filter out ip addresses is that ip addresses are often recycled, but DNS-based filters often persist way beyond reason. Check out:

Well, the IP address of our mail server isn't recycled unless we choose to change it. I would certainly like the ability to tell other mail servers around the net that if a mail message purports to come from one of our users, but it doesn't come from the address of our main mail cluster, then it's a forgery and should be rejected.
