There doesn't seem to be a lot of emphasis on identity verification
according to this page. It only says "You might want to bring photo id
with you". Personally, and all the keysignings I've been involved with
and people I've spoken to about them, you should *always* verify
government issue photo id when agreeing to sign someone's key.

Len Sassaman's Efficient Group Key Signing Method is worth a read too.
It's at:
