    So if I change my name the police can't find me? ;)

    AV companies should be able to work with any form of ID. Use their local
    until an agreement as been made.

    Why?

    Why can't we handle not yet named viruses as 'unnamed' or we use a
    standardized (by ISO?) method to generate a numeric code that consists of a
    classification in categories and a sequential number and probably some kind
    of checksum or hash until the virus gets an official name?
