Yes, human-readable URLs are important.

They are important as additional clue to users.

They are important for SEO.

But most likely it would take Google+ years before they implement it (like it was with Blogger).

I very much doubt that users care about urls. (Yeah, you care, I care, sure, but nobody else.)

If you and I care about readable URLs why other users would not care? Everyone benefits from being able to read link that they see.
