Help me with my e-mail ponderings...

This is a two-part question concerning e-mail, the internet's original 'killer app'.

i ) We know email has its flaws
- but I'm looking for reasons (obvious and non-obvious) why an email address directory for the entire net has never (been attempted?) worked.
ii ) Does anyone know of a web app (preferably AJAX) which would serve as a repository for a given group's email addresses? Sort of a smaller version of the above. Individuals would be able to update their record in the app (perhaps by verifying with the system they own the address), there would be sensible authentication processes and vCards could be generated on the fly? It strikes me this could be quite handy...!
