No, it's not a problem. Your ISP is registered with the registrar.
They can simply list your IP you've been assigned as a valid mail
server. They then accept responsibility for your mail server

That I would agree. No disputing that. But at the same time, everyone
agrees that SOMETHING needs to be done. Regardless of what is done, it
will be a big change.

No, per company. Not per server. Per server would be a bit extreme.
Especially for those that have dozens of legit mail servers. As a
service provider you pay $100 a year for your account, in which you can
manage adding and removing mail server IP addresses from the list. But
only IP's that are in your SWIP'd space.

Above. Thanks for your input.
