Domain Names Revert To Phone Numbers?

from the 650.348.1000= dept

This is one of the stupidest ideas I’ve ever heard. This company wants to create a DNS system that translates phone numbers into IP addresses, claiming that it is easier to remember phone numbers than domain names. Have these guys ever seen a Palm Pilot? That is the only way I can remember anyones phone number.
