My impression is that the requirement to leave ID at the security desk is generally to provide an incentive to return the visitor badge at the end of the visit, rather than for any further verification of identity.It seems as though at this point there is little need for security to maintain control of the ID, again which could possibly leave it open to various activities already mentioned by some others.
