Perhaps this is still a void in the market? A business which operates small officers at which you can real-world verify your personal being using the most solid evidence available (perhaps in cooperation with governments) for that location/country which works together with the sorts of big- at random-webservice to help recover information?
That would remove the need for weak idea's. Either you setup and use a very solid recovery method or you present yourself (or perhaps a family member in case of (emergency/deceased/etc')).
With kind regards,
