Why make this more complicated that it needs to be?

Make the range for the MACs you know only big enough for the MACs you know.
You have to edit the file every time you add one so expand the range then.
What this doesn't do is allow for non-consecutive addresses in the known
range, but if you have the case where the known addresses must remain fixed
per machine, then just assign addresses on each machine manually.
