   Consider the Internet-draft that would allow all IP addresses to be
   created and used dynamically.  Addresses would be created primarily by
   using global positioning (latitude-longitude-altitude) information
   coupled with MAC  addresses (network interface card manufacturer/serial
   numbers).

   Wouldn't it make IP address management simpler?

Of course.  

But it makes routing just a little bit more challenging.  ;-)

Consider that the routing topology does not coincide nicely with geography.
