Why not allow user to renumber channels? - DirecTV

A channel number or favorite is just a "pointer" for the computer to go to so why not let the user just change the number altogether?
Why have a quick tune or favorites button that you need to click to, if I could just renumber the channels it would be much easier.
Let's say I have 800 channels of which 750 I will never watch.
If I could pick each one in order of MY Preference #1 - #50, or whatever then I would almost never need to use the lookup or quicktune feature.
I don't speak Spanish so why should I ever have to scroll through Spanish channels, or a Spanish only speacker scroll through English channels?
This is 2017 and not being able to renumber channels seems silly.
