The past couple of centuries are not necessarily normative in this regard. Whatever the meaning, it certainly is interesting that the Holy Father referred to himself primarily as the bishop of Rome, though I wouldn't be quick to attribute too much significance to the fact.

Unfortunately decentralization has so far meant empowering the national episcopal conferences who have often proved to be enemies of basic Catholic principles. The Pope is the pillar of unity within hierarchy of the church,hopefully Pope Francis does not forget that .
I wonder whether or not he wants to be the Pope.
