As no reputable host offers them, the main way in is via a VPS (extremely bad idea) or a Dedicated Server (bad idea) and not to mention all the licensing costs to get to a stage where it is possible to offer these services.
With the price point, most of the new startups won't consider it as they'd much prefer a reseller which is easier to start out.
As for @OP - Yes I'd recommend you offer reseller hosting. There is still many, many potential clients looking specifically for reseller and I don't think will change anytime soon.
Well said Alex and very true. There is a reason that none of the biggest hosts have every offered master or alpha reseller hosting. To hard to guarantee quality.
