I'm curious. If that's not the focus of the site, then what difference does it make? I don't know for sure, of course, but it seems that this would be a pretty simple change behind the curtains. The only difference would be potential change in your title and number of votes. And in your case, pg, it doesn't appear that there would be any change at all.
I can see disagreement if this is a major coding issue that would take away from time spent fixing/improving/whatever the whole site. And honestly that is the only argument "against" that I can think of.
But it seems that you're very much against the idea, and I'm really not sure why. Could you please elaborate?
