"mobile versions will be easy to scale quickly"

I just love how something that doesn't exist today and hasn't been tried is already touted as being easy to implement and scale.

After all, it's trivial to create a National Identity database and let everyone and their dog consult it to verify a phone holder's identity, right ? Isn't there an app for that ? What could possibly go wrong ?

The only thing that surprises me in this report is that it's not from Gartner.
