IPv6 Reverse DNS (RFC 2317) Delegation

I looked into this several years ago, but IPv6 was not yet available in my region.  However, now that it is available, I'm wondering whether it's possible to get reverse DNS delegation set up to my name servers?  For IPv4, I was forced to call support to get them set up.  That was annoying, but feasible for IPv4 since I only have 5 addresses.  For IPv6, where I have a /56 and, thus, around 10 followed by 30 zero's possible addresses, that doesn't really work.


I've seen references on the forums sayin that this is impossible.  That can't possibly be true, can it?
