That would make finding someone's grave incredibly difficult, if they were all like that. Even if you knew the general area, you'd have to scan a lot to find the one you wanted. They'd have to have a combination of name plus code.

Plus, it's lame.

Interesting, and odd or even nonsensical, to combine something very permanent (an engraved stone marker) with something very transient (a telecommunications/data encoding protocol). I think my advice would be to stick with classic engraved text that doesn't rely on infrastructure that will probably not exist more than a decade, let alone millenia.
