So instead of giving too much credence to government-issued IDs, you'd
prefer to give credence to a service provided "for free" by a commercial
entity with a conceivable interest in inserting backdoors in software or
subverting trust in certain keys (a.k.a. Google), with the whole thing
being archived in as system controlled by another commercial entity
(a.k.a. YouTube, incidentally a.k.a. Google), with no public oversight
of those archives.

I'm sure you'd sue Google and win if they fake the archive.
