Just a thought ...
Cacti doesn't HAVE to use SNMP, you can supply your own data externally. So you could use any means of extracting the pool status and insert that into RRD files, and let Cacti handle the graphing. Obviously it starts getting more complicated if the DHCP and Cacti servers are on different hosts.
