Yes, but the problem is that the first one represents an IP address,
which is at the addressing level, and can change, while the second
one is at the naming level, as a synonyme to the original name, and
something that DNS then looks up to get the CURRENT address.
If easy-to-type was the original problem we could do away with DNS
altogether and just use IP addresses everywhere, that could even get
rid of a lot of lawyers...
