Survey says...  BZZZZZT.

Read about SS7 LNP implementation before speaking, please.

They are very different creatures.  Something that resembles telephony LNP
will not scale to the quantity of micro-streams currently used by WWW

unlike TCP streams, telephone circuits are comparatively large streams with
much longer keepalive times.
