the point... network hygiene and accountability.. to make it harder
for an unknown malicious person to connect an unknown computer into a
live network wall jack somewhere in your building and become a member
of that network segment with equal access to network data that
registered computers have.   If you require everyone to centrally
register and bind ips to mac addresses, then you make it much easier
to hold specific human beings accountable when the computers
registered to their names start acting maliciously.
