I'm not sure I want something that elaborate to ftp a file from my
laptop to my desktop. And I certainly don't want to have to remember
IP addresses for both of them.
I think DNS works pretty well. You just have to think of it like an
800 number --- 800 numbers are ambiguous (1-800-CONTACTS could provide
information about how to contact people, information about aliens
contacting the earth, or information about the old PBS show 3-2-1
Contact!, but it in fact sells contact lenses), but they're still
easier to remember than the digits.
