If you've chosen to deliberately break your mail server like this, that is of course your choice to make. I just hope you've informed your customers.
Please provide a reference to a requirement that a mailserver must accept mail from sources that do not have reverse DNS in place. For that matter, please provide a reference to a requirement that a mailserver must accept mail, regardless of reason.
It's one thing to say "if you've chosen to deliberately run your mail server like this", it's entirely different to claim that a mailserver is "broken" by running it like this.
