That's not precisely what I was saying. Nobody uses (or should use)
the circuit ID to assign IP addresses. What I mean is that they use
the circuit ID to figure out who you are (that is, whether or not your
account is current, etc). Since this information is handed to the
DHCP server by the relay agent, it's dead easy to track.
