In a similar vein, it'd be nice if colo facilities who require  
government-issued ID could be taught that there is actually more than  
one government in the world, and that if they mean "US-federal-or- 
state-government-issued" they should say so.

(They let me in eventually with a passport. But if they're going to  
trust a foreign-issued passport as photo id, it's not really that  
obvious to me why they wouldn't trust a foreign-issued driving  
licence. It's not like they can really tell whether either of them  
are forged.)
