My driving license doesn't have a photograph on it, so using it as an  
identity document is pointless. Some organisations use it that way,  

Passports should at least follow the MRTD standard published by ICAO.  
I suspect the issue is the difficulty with verifying the authenticity  
of a passport rather than knowing what the passport ought to look like.
