That's because you're running your own dynamic/static DNS, right ?
Or because you give your IP to someone before they call you ?
The problem is still there for most people.
Your email address doesn't change when you move. The email is dropped to a mail box and you as a user go and fetch it from there.
For a phone call, the phone call has to reach you, so you have to register your current location first.
I don't see how one can change that without impacting a lot the network, appart from generalizing dynamic DNS maybe.
Am I missing something ?
