Addressing is broken on a global scale. And this won't fix it. Addressing schemes like street & block level addresses can be useful for finding your way around. This is an important feature. I know how to get from 123 My Street to 150 My Street. I don't know how to get from Libres 2956 (Saxophone) to Libres 2900 (Other avatar).

Any physical addressing scheme that doesn't take routing into consideration is doomed to failure IMO.
