However, I have not yet found a single upstream that even knows how to do
it, let alone offers this as a service. They are also not happy
that I won't
sign control of my domains over to them and that I run my own
zone servers.

It looks to _me_ (as it does to about 95% of the people on this mailing
list, I'm sure) like you're trying to use something totally inadequate for
your purposes.
If you're using the standard "small business trying to get a connection for
web browsing and email" package that's aimed at your average
non-computer-related small business (eg: a small law or accounting firm),
then you shouldn't be surprised that they want to be the technical contact
and authoritative DNS for your domains, because that's part of their
offering. And, I might add, it's a very good thing they offer that, because
your average small business probably doesn't have a clue what DNS is.

BTW, if you know an ISP that does, I want their contact number. I'm not
trying to win any arguments here. If I lose then I win, because I
will have
found a decent vendor. Also, with my monthly recurring cash on the line,
don't you think I've been looking? Also, SpeakEasy seems to not have heard
about SWiP.

As someone posted before (but you probably didn't read):

To single out one record, look it up with "!xxx", where xxx is the
handle, shown in parenthesis following the name, which comes first.

Now, I realize your name isn't Alex Black (unless you have multiple
personalities), but it sure looks to me like SpeakEasy knows how to SWIP
(and the SPEK-RMEYER-0 name suggests they were trying to SWIP it to you).
