there are good cases for doing it with laptops that
you want to have specific addresses when they are connected
to a particular subnet yet have the DNS reflect there current
address when they are not on the subnet. It also provides
for a single administration point when adding a machine.
Having the laptop update it's own address is one solution.
TSIG or SIG(0) can be used to authenticate the update.
