[c-nsp] BRAS Redundancy

I was hoping someone can help me with the following issue.

I currently have a 7301 acting as my BRAS running on 12.2(33)SRD3. I use 
the ISG feature to terminate PPPoE sessions on QinQ subinterfaces.

The virtual templates associated with the bba groups use ip unnumbered 
loopback 0.
The IP on loopback 0 is x.x.96.1/21

DHCP is configured for client IP address assignment using DHCP pools as 
relay agents to a central DHCP server.

ip dhcp pool DHCP
   relay source x.x.96.0
   class DHCP
      relay target x.x.111.5

I would now like to install a second 7301 for load balancing/redundancy.

I currently trunk the QinQ vlans to the existing 7301 so I just do the 
same for the second 7301.

On the second 7301 I assign a new /21 network for DHCP assignment.
This works fine for dynamic IP assignment.

My problem is that we have multiple customers with static IP address 
assignment from the DHCP server.

How can I assign the same IP address to a certain client session if they 
login to either BRAS when each BRAS has a unique network associated with 
the loopback 0 interface.

I was thinking mobile IP but I have not tested in the lab and not sure 
if it is a supported solution.
