European national ID cards have enough security measures, and are
easily recognizable as such. And also, standing on a big KSP, I expect
other people to be more familiar than myself with what an European ID
looks like - and they should raise their voice in case it is not

Even though the Transnational Republic ID _does_ look like a legal
European ID card, I can produce more than one document I have around
here (legal, no counterfeits!) that look very similar to a
passport. And the people who has signed my key know that my current
passport _is_ easily counterfeitable. (Yes, it is at the end of its
validity period, it expires 2009/12, and I expect to travel to Spain
with a new one).
