// Kea supports reservations by several different types of identifiers:
// hw-address (hardware/MAC address of the client), duid (DUID inserted by the
// client), client-id (client identifier inserted by the client) and circuit-id
// (circuit identifier inserted by the relay agent). When told to do so, Kea can
// check for all of those identifier types, but it takes a costly database lookup
// to do so. It is therefore useful from a performance perspective to use only
// the reservation types that are actually used in a given network.
