As for the identity theft issue, this is another red herring. I can't
believe genealogists and family historians keep talking about privacy and

Identity theft is a problem for the police, banks, financial institutions
etc to solve but they can't because they're incompetent. It has nothing to
do with the issue of BMD certificates.
If that's what it takes to protect a child, sobeit.
No, no, no, no.
This is the line that is trotted out time, and time again.
"Think of the childruuun"
In the name of some entirely laudable aim, officialdom imposes restrictions on everbody which will not actually achieve the stated objective.
We could protect children from injuries from motor vehicles by outlawing them tomorrow. "If that's what it takes to protect a child, sobeit."
Grand-daughter recently broke her wrist while roller-skating.
She learned (age ten) a valuable lesson. Shit happens.
No-one, including herself, was to blame. She learned a bit about pain, a bit more about coping with a cast while on holiday and a lot about how jolly nice people are to you after an accident. Especially if you don't whinge <g>
One wouldn't have wished it on her, but, call me hard-hearted, I think she got a lot out of learning about accidents and how to cope with them ....... without needing someone to blame.
