There is no reason why the addresses that system uses need to be remotely
understandable by humans. The identifier I use to look you up and be able
to differentiate you from someone else would be run completely
differently from the addressing system used to route a message through a
store and forward network.
X.400 tried that. So did X.25.
I think one of the less-appreciated reasons the Internet succeedd was that
its unique identifiers were *memorable*.
