[Haskell-cafe] More instances for Identity?

I just noticed that Data.Functor.Identity [1] lacks many useful
instances like Eq, Ord, Show ... etc.

Is there a reason for this?

Otherwise, shouldn't we make a proposal for it?

In my opinion, if the seven-tuple has an instance, then Identity
deserves it as well.
