This is stupid. There are already various forms of official ID that sufficiently serve their purpose in meat space. What could any social network, including Google+, possibly add that a passport, State ID/driver's license, etc, don't already cover? But here's something Google+ has already begun that I think is very worthwhile: verified names. Now that's a useful concept that isn't being fully utilized! I doubt I will ever be famous, but I would gladly pay to have Google+ verify my account, because even non-famous people deal with impostors and identity thieves.
