You've made the assertion that the DHCP client will reject a lease for an address that it cannot install in
its routing table due to conflict with the LAN segment. I am arguing that would be a change to the
behavior of most CPE.
Yes, you can make the argument that CPE that doesn't behave that way is broken. Guess what,
most CPE is arguably broken in at least one fundamental way. That's what happens when you
buy routers for $30.
