Less than an hour, perhaps not. 

On small residential networks, though -- generally, anything where the 
router (which will need to get rebooted occasionally) *is* the DHCP server --
I tend to set the timeout to 30-60 minutes, to reduce the race window between
when a router is rebooted, and when a new device shows up and conflicts 
because it's given an IP another device still thinks it owns.
