Not to delve too far into this, but, there are significant differences
in the addressing you refer to...

UPS/USPS/FedEX do not deliver to you.  They deliver to your household.
They deliver to a physical location, regardless of who is present at
said physical location.  That's what your home address represents.

IP delivers to a specific host address, regardless of the system which
posesses that address at the moment or who is currently using that system.

EMAIL delivers to a specific mailbox, which, usually represents a specific
user, regardless of which system(s) the mailbox is hosted or read on.

Trying to make one of these addresses stable in terms of the others is,
in many cases counter-productive.
