If we take a typical bank who identify their customers like 0563434:
- How are their customers supposed to change this?
- What is the message you intend to bring bank-IT?

IMO, your best (and currently only) option is trusting the bank for using the
information they have about you in a good way.  There's no crypto or linked data
solution that can solve that problem AFAICT.

The social web is another thing than banking.
