tristan, it's possible that you had an amazing and lifelike dream where APS-C focal length indicators became not only true but also equivalent focal lengths. I know I've had dreams where exceptionally awesome (but unfortunately unrealistic) things would happen, and I woke up really believing in them.
it would be great to have all the APS-C standard zooms start at 18mm equivalent, rather than the current 29mm equivalent. let's be honest, 29mm is only wide angle if you're a portrait shooter. to a generalist, which most APS-C owners are, lenses should really be at least 25mm equivalent (16mm or wider focal length). a 16-120 would be the same zoom ratio as an 18-135, and way, way more useful.
