So what sort of chips would be used in your example of the large 
group that wants to track children? Surely they would have to have 
memory and would be writable. Or are you saying these are one time 
issue things, like an ID card? Or single purpose, for the specific 
event like name badges issued with a texta on a card, only a chip is 
on the card and you don't need a texta any more?
