I have Comcast, but that's not relevant to this suggestion. My static 
IPs are on a VM. There's an OpenVPN connection between my 
home server and my Linode server. The Linode server NATs the static IPs 
over the VPN connection to my home server. This requires nothing special 
from the ISP, although is slightly more complexity, latency, and cost 
(for the Linode, but I have it anyway).
