Because I want a central repository of the stable addresses.
My preferred way to use DHCP is for it to give out fixed addresses
to each client, and without a pool of 'spare' addresses.

Even if addresses are allocated from a pool, I want a system to (usually) have
the same address after a reboot. Even when the shutdown sequence gives up
the DHCP lease.

I've had to setup and run my own dhcp server at work (and I had to hack
the ISC source) because the corporate server is so broken.
It wouldn't give a machine back the same IP address after a reboot.
