Wouldn't it be possible to just block this serial number?  Example would be
when everyone found out about MS's "document" serial number that is imbedded
in each MS document.

There are now ways to disable this format.

So my question would be, if this sort of thing is implemented HOW long does
one think a "work-around" would be found?

Just a thought...

standards body, would include the serial number for each computer's network
connection hardware as part of its expanded new Internet protocol address
