I'm not privvy to that discussion, but I'd expect that "[...] that does
not unduly exclude valuable volunteers" is also an implicit requirement
of any identification method considered.

Even if you /could/ develop a mechanism by which we had safe and
reliable identification of functionnaries, it'd be worthless if most (or
even just many) of the volunteers we had were unable to avail themselves
of it because of social or geographical constraints.
