What's in a title?

Sometime last week, a parliamentary colleague from PKR suggested that all elected representatives should stop the practice of addressing each other as YB or Yang Berhormat outside the legislative chambers and to ask the general public to do the same. Is this a reasonable or even a practical request? 

Within the legislative chamber, the standing orders, for those who may not know, prohibit MPs from addressing each other by name. Hence, we would usually address each other by the name of our constituency or sometimes with the honorific YB or sometimes both eg Yang Berhormat dari Serdang.
