that would be a complete nightmare for issue nodes, since the titles  
can change all the time, yet people need easy to paste, unique URLs  
to refer to issues with.

also, titles can contain a lot of characters that aren't valid URLs...

there's a reason path.module and mass_url.module are in contrib...  
not everyone wants that behavior (for good reason).  personally,  
leaving things as /node/X by default (with optional aliases where  
desired) is sort of like having your site automatically filtered  
through tinyurl.com. ;)

-1 from me...
