I don't think I understand what you are saying.  We switch routers and DNS

Of course ISPs go bankrupt.  They usually keep operating however.  Even
so, if they were to shut their doors completely it would be awesome to be
able to simply change a couple lines in a router and in a DNS server than
the total nightmare you can have with having to renumber with IPv4.
