I don't find a solution that requires customers to place phone calls to
have some number changed somewhere acceptable either. Therefore it
doesn't really apply. Just like DHCP won't work for dialup users (yeah,
let's all configure L2TP tunnels over dialup and run DHCP over that!
It'd suck, same point, different reasoning, not an applicable solution
(On a tangent about having to make phone calls after hardware changes,
I was pretty surprised when a friend had to do that after she had
received a replacement mobile phone after her previous had been stolen.
In Europe, you get a new SIM card from the telco and a new phone from
your insurance company, no additional trickery is needed.)
