We might even have an open bug report about this. IIRC, gniibe proposed
a solution.

It is a convenience thing anyway.  With several serial numbers a 
Pinentry prompt 

  Please insert card with S/N 12345 or 34567 or 567788

would not be very helpful.  It should then better display 

  Please insert the appropriate card.

and a "*" instead of a list of serial numbers would be sufficient.
