Static IP and IP management

Hello everyone,

I have been told that static IP assignation can help in IP management.  Of
course, I can know which IPs are assigned by looking in dhcpd.conf.  But
after a while an IP might not be used anymore and nothing in dhcpd or bind
will tell me if it still in use or not.  I have setup a lab to experiment
where I have configured dhcpd and bind and I cannot find out how static IP
can really help in IP management.

Did I miss something somewhere?
