This seems like a non-problem - if you want the relay agent to report  
the Mac address, don't do unicast renewals.   Unicast renewals, as far  
as I can tell, add nearly zero value, so it's unlikely to be an issue.  
Certainly a client could send the option, but not only is it  
unnecessary, it would waste packet space for both the client and the  
relay to do it.
