I see: a sort of DHCP reservation based on username, instead of MAC 

So, this means it wouldn't be possible to use PPPoE with assigned block 
of *real* static IPs (including IPs for default gateway, subnet address 
and broadcast address) which have to be hard coded in most ISP offers?

Thank you all,
