Cisco has an interesting feature called ODAP (On Demand Address Pools). The
idea is that the router will go and request additional pools from a DHCP
server whenever a utilization threshold has been hit. It also has the
capablity to release pools back (on router restart or if utilization went
I do not think it is widely implemented, but I have implemented it in the
past and it works.
