Right. Because if you're a mangled mess on the road and they've just arrived and are hoping to save your life I can just imagine the situation:

"Whats this QR code for. Anyone got a phone? Lets have a look."

"Oh , doesn't work, anyone got another phone? Yeah, I'll wait a sec ... "

"He's coughing blood, got that phone yet? Android 2.0? You kidding me, that won't work, Mick, what phone you got..."

"Whats this? Unrecognised code... hold on, it got scratched in the crash, there we go!"

"Viola, blood type AB....Shit, he just died."
