Do you see *any* sense in doing something like that?
I don't think, that it is usefull to put all MACs got via arp or
smbstatus/nfsstatus, whatever into the dhcpd.conf neither on tjener,
nor on a TS.
I would vote for building an own tool, to administer maschines.
I will start a new thread for that theses days.

So, would anyone here see any situation, where it might be usefull,
to put all knows MACs into the dhcpd-configuration?
