Just every business does it 'the old way'. Everybody relies on stable prefixes.
Runs services like DNS not routers, etc, etc.

I can replicate that at home. 

But then when I tell other people, they can't do it. Because on a consumer lines
it is just too complicated.

Current state is that many home routers have all kinds of bugs. So just putting
more features on a home router that often gets selected by the ISP to be as cheap
as possible is just not the way to go.

So in the end, consumers can only be dumb clients who have to rely on services
provided by 'the cloud'.
