[Bug-wget] --random-wait

Hello. In reading the manual for Gnu Wget 1.13.4, I have a question about the section explaining the option "--random-wait". The explanation providing some of the motivation for the option includes this statement:

"A 2001 article in a publication devoted to development on a popular consumer platform provided code to perform this analysis on the fly. Its author suggested blocking at the class C address level to ensure automated retrieval programs were blocked despite changing DHCP-supplied addresses."

What exactly does this last sentence mean, especially the part about "changing DHCP-supplied addresses"? Thanks.
