I've tried such a system and found that its a hinderance or irrelevant if you're:
* A slow typer.
* Working on multiple files at once from multiple projects.
* Use a non-labyrinthine directory structure... or a spreadsheet to launch scenes (with static names).
* Reading/writing dependencies and output with $HIP.
* Not employing multiple specialists to work on a shot.
*  Moving shots around or restoring old shots from archival.
...
So far, under some conditions, not using something like setshot is perfectly understandable.
