Your interpretation is correct. I wasn't disagreeing with anything you said.
Rather, I was extending the thread in a direction that I didn't think had been
covered completely.

I may have missed it when it originally got into the thread, but I don't think
any had ever explicitly stated that SSN's were originally invented as identifiers,
but that they identify SSN registrants, and not to identify employees.
