One of the reasons to implemented the extended private key format was to
make it easier to add meta data to a private key. For example several
S/N could be added to the private key file and it would also be easier
to automatically remove them.
Having a way to ask the user to insert a certain card using data which
is permanently associated with the card (printed serial number) is a
very useful feature and cannot, according to my experience, be replaced
by just asking for the key id or such.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
