Looking at this as an economic decision, were I a modern ISP, I would want

  * as few different devices as possible
  * good margins on each

and I would not care about whether the smarts were in the CPU or a 
controller, as my only interests would lie in solving an linear 
programming problem for the least cost in base cost, inventory and 
replacement costs.

A quick look at Tek Savvy (our best non-monopolist isp) shows that have 
one modem they rent...

which they chose their best priced one:
