We require any specific IP involved in any access control or DNS entry have a DHCP reservation.  We allocate reservations outside the collective DHCP pool's scope.

We also use static NAT to remap disparate server internal addresses into a common external "subnet" to facilitate access controls on incoming traffic, rather than having to enumerate individual inside IPs that have "more open" access rights.
