For me, I bring a passport and a driver's license. If anyone tells me
"that's not enough for me!", well, okay: it's not enough for them.
There are plenty of other people at the keysigning party, and I might
not want to have a signature from someone quite that paranoid and
tinfoil-hatted, anyway. :)
The best way to protect the ID is to not let it out of your sight. If
someone wants to hold onto your ID to inspect it, let them: but don't
let them walk away with it. Sounds stupid, but it works.
Honestly, the biggest ID risk at a keysigning party is people
accidentally walking away with each others' drivers' licenses.
