Mac addresses are unique (you can fake/clone them but that is another 
topic discussion) - imho they therefore can be used globally as well?
But saying that, it is in my case not a problem to use them locally as 
the issue concerns my local network.

I do use DHCP and fixed combined. Using this I am familiar with; my 
issue is identifying hardware in a network that is partitially using DHCP.
