That pretty much would be VoIP without what makes it useful. If I can only talk to players I already know anyway, what's stopping me from just using Discord?
The hailing / invitation wouldn't just be for friends but anyone else in-game - like if you find a buddy during a mining excursion or something you can invite them to comm with you. Or if you're a pirate / fighter you could hail an enemy's ship, inviting them to comms as well so you can make your demands known.
Basically if you're wanting to chat in a group you can, but the random guy at base sitting next to you isn't forced to have to listen to your chatter nor everyone else's chatter.
