If the Post Office can offer Forever Stamps, why can't Marriott issue Forever Points?

No, not the kind of lightweight bathroom scale that slips on a wet floor, (my talking scale is often rude) but the ability to counter the increasing less valuable points for everyone.
My idea (I am ready for all comments and critiques) is that higher elite levels would get a small break for free points used stays.
This would reward loyalty and counter the trend toward devaluation of points, as seen in recent years. If this were done Marriott could eliminate Points Savers all together.
Well, the US Post Office loses $25,000,000 per day. Probably not the model Marriott is looking to emulate.
Yes but they are good at delivering mail that I can recycle immediately keeping that business afloat (it also loses money, but not quite as much as the USPS)
If not "Forever Points," it's would be awesome to have an "inflation-adjustment" to points balance when new categories are announced, etc. For example, if the 3800+ venues and realignment of categories shows a 4% increase, then my 1,000,000 points should be adjusted up by 40,000 to match.
Some of my points were earned 3-4 years ago as I cannot spend them as fast as I was earning them, so these lost a lot of value. Points I would earn now - I have assumed the value as I earn them based on today's "exchange rate."
