Of course that makes the vehicle much easier to identify by
the inevitable software (which I havent heard of yet, but anticipate
soon) which will do vehicle recognition, based on dents, scratches
and bondo patches. The software would note when and where it
saw every vehicle that passes by, drop the info into a database
which would probably never see the light of day, unless called
upon to solve a crime.

Freedom is not free, Mike. As the Washington Squares
song so eloquently states:

...Freedom is a birthright of all women and men,
But every generation has to win it again...
