The point is that what the ISP is offering may be ideal for some users, and not others.   And some ISPs may offer it, while others don't.   So if there's a standard mechanism in place for using it when it's offered, if desired, then that's a win, even if not everyone wins.

What happens with queries isn't important as long as they are satisfied; there are lots of ways of satisfying queries for AAAA records, but only two ways of satisfying queries for PTR records, and the ISP may support one or both of those two ways, or neither.   The point of the DNS-PD document is to provide a way for the ISP and CPE to communicate about which mechanisms are supported and desired.
