The EIDR Model

Does anyone else have a problem with the EIDR model in that it is an opaque system with no other way of confirming functionality apart from querying their servers?

The registry assigns a unique universal identifier for all registered assets. EIDR is an opaque ID with all information about the registered asset stored in the central registry. Its structure consists of a standard registry prefix, the unique suffix for each asset and a check digit. The suffix of an asset ID is of the form XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-C, where X is a hexadecimal digit and C is the ISO 7064 Mod 37, 36 check character.
