Not every PTR queries resolves to the correct domain.

74.125.129.26 => jm-in-f26.1e100.net (A google IP address, but point to a
different domain owned by google)

I would be ok with indirectly someone getting the info rather than directly
providing it.

The point is that when it's *that* easy to get the information indirectly, 
you're
not providing actual security, you're providing security theater.
