Ah.  And does 11179 (a) require Unique Identifiers, or (b) simply say
they are a Good Thing, or (c) even more simply say that if you have
such a thing, this is what it is to be called?

And now here I was, in a country where a right to say how the country should
be governed was restricted to six persons in each thousand of its population.
For the nine hundred and ninety-four to express dissatisfaction with the
regnant system and propose to change it, would have made the whole six
shudder as one man, it would have been so disloyal, so dishonorable, such
putrid black treason.  --Mark Twain's Connecticut Yankee
