I like to have my IPs resolve both ways too, but try finding an ISP who
will either give you that sort of control through delegation or is
willing to setup the required reverse DNS records on their side. If
you're lucky you'll get to play with. I don't
know of any residential ISPs, at least not in the UK, who will do that
sort of thing.

Having said that, there's nothing particularly "wrong" about not having
reverse DNS records for IPs, or having ones that don't match. It only
really matters if you're sending out email to people with overly
aggressive spam filters that check for that sort of thing.
