I've lost count of the number of people who've, quite independently,
thought of this. I have never come across anyone who's pointed out a
flaw in it, real or imagined. It is sheer stupidity that the idea
wasn't taken up.

Mind you, Tim Berners-Lee did have to argue pretty hard against those
who wanted the web to be run with a central database,.
