"There are always going to be luddites who bemoan advances"

But in this case there is no 'advance' except in marketing opportunities.

Why should I replace a perfectly useful and reliable piece of ID that can fit in my wallet and costs me $40 every five years with a fragile, bulky, expensive, easily lost, easily stolen, easily compromised battery dependent money-sucker?

That's not just one step back, that's several.
