Only 600+? Of course it's possible. The only legitimate reason to use
non-static assignment is if you don't have enough address space for your

Not knowing what devices are attaching to your networks gives you
exactly the sort of problem you're currently trying to find a kluge for,
and invites unwelcome guests on your network.
