I disagree with that point.  My home cable connection has a resolvable
DNS name i.e. 66-45-43-23.socal.rr.com. (not my actual dns name but it
is similar).  All road runner customers are like this and probably many
other ISPs do this as well.

In my experience, many dynamic ip clients are also given matching DNS
resolvable names. For example my dynamically assigned IP address resloves to
adsl-XX-XXX-XX-XXX.dsl.akrnoh.ameritech.net according to nslookup. I
sometimes use the hostname to connect to my machine via FTP, HTTP, etc.
