I anticipate a somewhat complicated dhcpd configuration, but I wonder if there are any ARP issues that might arise from mapping multiple IP subnets onto a single Ethernet segment.
As you already asserted, partitioning clients into their own subnets shields them from any broadcast traffic occurring in any other subnet. Does this have any ill effect? Nothing in which I am aware.

The router(s) separating these subnets from their supplying DHCP servers will need to be configured to allow DHCP requests to traverse subnets since by definition, routers will not forward DHCP traffic.
