IPv6 has plenty of them.

rfc4193, and please remember you can bind multiple IPv6 addresses, which 
makes it even more fun, and there's honestly no reason why dns services, 
capture services, etc on a home router can't make it a painless process. 
That being said, typing a shortcut address into a browser won't be bad 
and since not link-local you don't have to worry about the %interface crap.
