Additional metadata, e.g. number and expiration date would
be helpful.

On the other hand, just some clear guidelines that participants HAVE
TO abide by, would help, e.g. a commitment to a signing policy for
all keys that are to appear in a Debian keyring.

I will always challenge the "government-issued ID" due to the vastly
differing standards across the globe, but "travel document" is
actually a term that someone uttered earlier, which raises the bar
a lot higher.
