Hmm, I think this is supposed to be an english language list.

Your suggestion is overly complicated and isn't 
needed to solve the OPs problem. All he needs to 
do is ensure that the fixed address(es) aren't 
included in any range. Eg :

subnet ...
   range ;

host {
   fixed address ;
} is not within the range to and so cannot be 
allocated to any other device.

If you were to use two subnets, then they would 
have to be a shared subnet, and you would need 
something that can route between them.
