When the time comes that we address the issue of a national ID, it will be easy to assign an ID to individuals in whatever format is ultimately decided.

"Real ID" is a Federal ID standard, so your state driver's license becomes a national ID card. The next step would be to amend "Real ID" so the code number on the license is a standardized format that encodes whatever information the standard setters want.
