And hashes, if done properly, should be able to be tied to an actual biometric reading (fingerprint, iris, mucus, etc.)

Hashes aren't used to reconstruct the actual fingreprint/iris/mucus but are used to positively identify the donor. They should be just as protected as any other personal identification (PII) and misuse/transmission should be subject to statutory penalties.
