Technically it is very much possible to keep your html files where they are and dns elsewhere,

Dont know if anyone will give you control to do you Dns modification of Mx records, but i think if you ask your host to do it for you they would do it usually at no charge, Atleast we do it for our clients

you may be able to do this using the free 20mb package that offer?

I have been using their 300mb package but have moved host to the USA as the bandwidth was high. But I point the name to the ip address of the usa host. You get full DNS access.

I think a number of hosts do offer mx record changes..we do, so I would expect if you just enquire through tech support of companies you're looking at they would be able to give you a yes or no pretty quickly.

hope this helps.
