Shouldn't customers that purchase IP services from an ISP use the ISPs
mail server as a smart host for outbound mail?

At least here in DE there are resellers of DTAG which offer DSL connections
without any SMTP relay. If you want relaying you also have to order a domain
via them. More funny: you cannot deliver mails to DTAG (actually T-Online)
as the resellers use address space of DTAG and hence the DTAG servers
believe you are a customer of them and should use the internal relays ...

I think that is also true of BT in the UK who as the incumbent are the only 
provider of things like unmetered dialup..
