Thanks for the response Brian.  Definitely something that seems
critically important for service providers.

Since we have to use a provider network today, I'm assuming assigning a
PTR record with Designate doesn't work (openstack ptr record set)?
Seems like it will only associate a PTR record with a floating IP, and a
fixed IP assigned to a provider network doesn't qualify (I'm making an
assumption here - this hasn't been tested).  I'm trying to determine
whether we need to handle reverse DNS separate from OpenStack, which
would be a bummer.
