Ideally I would agree, but there are some passable operational reasons for this to happen, and there are also some good operational ones as we enter IPv6-land.

Instead, I agree with another poster who suggested a mismatch or absence of this data in the DNS is good input to a scoring system, but not good grounds for outright rejection.
