Indeed.

If you forced a MAC change to force an IP change every time somebody
port scanned you, or threw something else bad at you, you'd be
changing your IP hundreds of times a day. I guarantee your ISP would
cut you off before long, and it's just silly anyway. Attempting to
"run away" from attackers by changing IPs is pointless and
impractical.
