I too am seriously concerned about using rDNS as leverage to gain 
compliance.  If keeping Whois up to date is a real issue, then revoke 
the resources or apply a financial fine to the offender.  Turning off 
rDNS is equally likely to create an operation impact for someone else as 
it is for the offending party, therefore penalizing the wrong party. 
Using rDNS as an enforcement mechanism is likely to have unintended 

As written I'm opposed to the policy as it is likely to create operation 
impact on wrong party.
