ever seen a turkish passport? the real ones look like bad fakes. i'm sure 
that's not the only country that issues fake looking passports.

personally, the only way i'd issue a level 3 signature on a key is if i 
know the person in some capacity. if i just meet someone at a keysigning 
party the best they could hope for is a level 2 signature.
