If you tap in the IP addresses directly instead of using DNS or prefer to use hashes of the IP addresses (just as meaningful as hashes of names like lwn.net) you will still have the problem of there being a limited number of IP addresses and routing authority for blocks of these IP addresses (however many bits if these are of a fixed size) and these address bits being partitioned and delegated hierarchically. So what exactly is the problem you are trying to solve ? Perhaps DNS solves a different problem from the one you had in mind, and perhaps you will need to go deeper than DNS to the routing protocols and internetwork address formats in order to solve your problem.
