In a sense, yes. It is necessary to involve DNS for, say, ID->locator
However, a problem of using a domain name as an identifier is that
not all the packets contain the domain name.
If you work hard, connection oriented protocols such as TCP may
mostly work. But, the approach is not applicable to the connectionless
Another desirable property (to prevent source locator forging etc.) is
to let source ISPs modify the source locator, which is impossible
