Assign unchanging IP address based on MAC address.  Done/done.

And quadrupple your techsupport costs? Thanks, but no thanks.

For always assigning the same IP address to a customer?  Why would this
increase support costs?

especially done via dhcp... you could probably even automate getting new
ips from a dynamic pool and slapping them into permanent assignments.

Rubbish.

If you do that, you lose all the benefits. Also, when a customer's
son/daugter/computer-expert-from-chubb-institute-friend does something and
it breaks your lovely system you will not just increase your tech support
costs, but also will lose the customer.
