can work without a central registry for the numbers then.

Yep, all you need is a central registry for names :)

There are schemes to do without (reverse domain names, i.e. au.com.rustcorp.* is all yours and you don't have to register). Also with names the namespace is much bigger and clashes are much less likely, so chances that it works out with everybody simply picking a sane name are much higher.
