Excellent point. Identification via IP address is the least point of
concern to me (as long as the host part doesn't use a GUID of course).

But making a lot of fuzz about prefix randomization like some German
ISPs do in the press nicely distracts from the real powerful
identification methods you mentioned - which are widely used.
