This is the crux of the argument, devices and software (ie asterisk) 
that don't support, or don't support properly/fully the use of SRV 
records... I know of MTA software that doesn't properly support MX 
records as well, they try to send it to the A record then fall back to 
MX or something weird like that, but unlike SIP this is the minority not 
the majority...

This may be so, however I've always seen it written as 
number at fwd.pulver.com I always wondered why even on freeworlddialup.com 
it wasn't written as number at fwd.freeworlddialup.com...
