What problem is this a solution for?

Mandatory ID cards?

If everyone has a smart phone, then everyone has their driving licence on them, so everyone effectively has an ID card on them. It is only a short step to make de facto into de jure and make it mandatory to show it at every possible opportunity. Electronic papers citizen!
