CBI wishes for the ID scheme we're not getting

The Confederation of British Industry, the public prints told us this morning, has backed the government's "flawed" ID card scheme, from which one might conclude that the UK business umbrella body thinks ID cards a good thing in principle, but that the scheme as currently presented needs a fair bit of work. This however is not so - the CBI says "employers are ready to back an ID [note that 'card' is missing] scheme in principle", then presents a long and broadly well-argued document discussing the issues of identity management as they relate to individuals and business.
