This is already the case.

SS7 is sort of like telephone DNS, but, it translates dialed/dialing numbers
into billing numbers and destination identifiers. It turns out that all
of these numbers have the same format and look a lot alike (in the
anyway, it's 3 digit NPA, 3 digit NXX, 4 digit suffix).
This is how LNP is achieved and how TFNs (800 numbers) are routed as well.
Hence my claim it has already been done.
If it wasn't crypto-signed, it probably didn't come from me.
