Seems like an excellent explanation. Now that I know that having all 
subnets mentioned in dhcpd.conf *could* be a good thing, and *can't* be a 
bad thing, I'm going to stick with putting my interfaces in 
/etc/sysconfig/dhcpd.conf and *also* specifying all subnets in dhcpd.conf. 
Less chance of a mistake or misconfiguration that way.
