IMO any of Requestor, Verifier, or Evaluator would be preferable to 
Consumer.

Except, Requestor could be confused with 'holder', the person/entity 
asking for the original issuing, since at the start they are 
'requesting' that a credential be issued for them -- which they then 
take elsewhere to be Evaluated or Verified (or, currently, Consumed).

But as you noted, with multiple possible systems in play -- finance, 
education, payments, government -- it's going to be hard not to cause 
at least some confusion somewhere.
