Yes, there will most likely be machines that automatically report

There already are. That's how the quick-reaction blacklists get their speed.

But it's not so bad. Lists such as and don't 
accept reports from the general public, and they will immediately 
remove an entry, by anyone's request.

Yes, that may solve the problem with DHCP dynamic IP MTAs,
Once you have got your instance of a dynamic IP, you could check
it at the RBL and get it off the blacklist, which would probably
happen instantly. And then you can use your MTA. Would that work?
