OK, this is ugly, and I've not tested it, but it should work.

First, set a tag if the hostname is correct


then, set a tag if the MAC is correct


finally, set a tag if _both_ match


Finally, make a dhcp range with one address that's only used when all-ok 
is set


I'd be very interested to know if that works!
