| has *any* form of identity

That IP overloads "who" and "what" into one value is a fatal flaw.
NAT forces the IP address to indicate topological _location_ and is
therefore good.  Anyone who attempts to use a locator as an identifier
is wrong-headed and deserves no sympathy on the grounds of, "well our
forefathers were wrongheaded too!" and other arguments of that style.
