Dutch database to track residents from cradle to grave

According to Wired News, information related to all Dutch residents maintained by the government will be deposited into a single database, from cradle to grave. To protect privacy, apparently nobody will have access to the whole data record. Hmm. It sounds a bit like a mega-Longitudinal Databank. See: Wired News: Dutch Treat: Personal Database.
