I don't really care if an online identity is provably linkable to a physical identity, just that its secure and when (for example) 'LadyBigMac' posts its trustable that its the same entity that posted with that identity (per service obviously) in the past. Having additional identity tie ins to help prevent identity theft seems good but shouldn't be required. You'll never know if something someone posted was posted under duress or not anyway, its as useful as security by obscurity when it comes to determining someone's motive/reasoning behind a given communication.
