I think this proposal warrants consideration for the debate on permanent 
rules that we need to have before the end of April.
The immediate objections I have to it are:

- Processing costs for sending, receiving, verifying and storing the
   documentation. Someone has to cover this.
- The fact that it is not useful against a disrupter who is willing to be
   identified. So it can't be the only rule.

But it belongs on the table for April.
