Question about Static Reservation and Fail-Over

I'm running a 150 "Shared-networks" setup with ISC DHCP 4.0.1
To make it easier to manage I have one (1) config file for each shared
network that i "include" in my DHCPD.CONF
Some workstations have a reservation in multiple "Shared-networks"

Right now I’m doing static reservation in each of the
"Shared-networks" for each user... but this is getting complicated and

Now the questions:

-	Is there a way to create a main reservation file (static.leases)
were I can reserve the IP's for the same HOST across the different
"Shared-networks" ? I tried via a global reservation but am having
trouble providing the clients with their "Gateway" (default router).

-	Is there a way to run ISC DHCP in failover mode but without "Load-Balancing"

Any ideas ?
