That's why I have had a PO box for twenty years so I could vectorise it to
my current physical address and why I now have a mobile phone number and
use the fixed one for my computer. In the same way I hope that my network
name will have immutability across changes in ISP and those who might run
the domains.

I expect to move about from place to place, live where I like, and keep my
postal address, phone number and internet host name. On the latter for
double insurance I use a PURL.
