I dont think this would work too well. The users who are infected often think something is wrong because their connection and computer are not working quite right. So they disconnect / reconnect / reboot so they burn through quite a few dynamic IP addresses along the way.

This is an artifact of ISP´s wanting to have static IP´s as an add-on premium service so they provide short lease times and change IP as often as it´s feasible without
interrupting service unneccessarily.
