I can see via Wireshark that the card communicates via MAC, but a static would be nice. My network usually have DHCP disabled, as it is unncessary traffic. Not to mention that when ad-hocing, a static is almost a requirment. Nobody wants to enable ICS or RRAS, nor do they want to start some third party app everytime they decide to ad-hoc. And, the waiting for DHCP to timeout gets really annoying.
You could even make the choice of static or DHCP part of the selected profile (see my related post about custom profiles per SSID).
Thing like these would make the Pro card actually "PRO-fessional", not just pro-sumer.
