I KNOW!  I KNOW!  I know exactly what it will achieve!

If you are tracking lots of people, and one person doesn't have a tag, then 
it's obvious they are a terrorist and need to be exterminated!

But isn't it the travelers responsibility to check with the counter at the 
"appointed" times?

sitting patiently in the waiting area, relaxing and perhaps watching how 
incredible some of the staff are!
