No!   I don't think there's any reason to tell people to implement it this 
way.   Maybe I'm interpreting what you're saying too strictly - I would not 
object to language like this:

   The DHCP server should (lowercase!) allocate new leases in such a way 
that it does not offer the same IP address to two clients in two successive 
DHCP Advertise messages if one client fails to respond to a DHCP Advertise 
before the second client sends a DHCP Solicit message.

(or something to that effect)
