However Drew suffers because some idiots in his org fail to update the files correctly. I used to have the same problem when I took over ops at a small ISP. They were using the routing table to store assigned subnets trick. It was OK until a link died so a subnet dropped out of the routing table. They thought "Oh look spare space" and assigned it to somebody else.....
There are also a load of decent (not good) free IP address management systems available, some with built in DNS updaters.
I do not use these because they all drove me mad. Now I just have somebody else do it for me. It's worth it ;-)
