Seriously if you're not a retard and are genuinely interested on this subject it's because of how technology develops through the years. Things are always going to change and new concepts will be introduced but it's not always economically sound to replace years of development just for a new concept. What we do is build upon this technology until it's more reasonable to start from scratch. Unfortunately that's not always the case and that's why we now have bloated systems such as the web and to an extend mobile communications.

If you did the same thing for phone numbers, you would still need a unique identifier to route the call, whether that is the MSISDN, IMSI, or what have you. Basically OP wants to add a "vanity name" to make it easy to remember a unique identifier, which is a function that is already done by your contact list on your phone.
