I don't see your problem.
If Verizon wants to isolate themselves they should.
If you want to help them, block incoming Verizon traffic (not too big a
loss, none of the 10000 messages or so on our mailservers that came in
the last about 3.5 hours passed the greylisters, about 50% were blocked
by HELO/Sender/Recipient checks, so who really cares).

If you have customers that complain, send them a FAQ containing the
links you've listed in your eMail and tell them they should advise their
communication partners at Verizon to change ISPs or sue them.

It's easy as that.
