To my understanding
- the ISP providing you the ip should also have the reverse zones
  delegated to him
- so he has the power on configuring the PTR record as the customer
- Most customers also allow customers to freely set PTR for 'their'
  IP's, i.e. with a web interface or triggered via mail

If an ISP is not able to escalate such a request to people that
understand "DNS PTR record", then one might also doubt that ISP will 
be able to provide services in a reliable manner..
