Hi Darren

And from the client's perspective it has released the lease. If that 
client requests a new lease it will only get that IP back again. Even 
though the server stores no state about the lease, the client can send a 
request to renew the lease and the server will send an ack,

If you want the event and lease structure then perhaps using a reserved 
lease would be a better option for you.

The client thinks there is, however, and seems to have no way to tell.  Is this a wise design choice?  I know it has been that way for a long time, but technically the address was "leased" from the client's perspective.
