No smiling, please!

Engadget tells us that you’re not allowed to smile for pictures on british biometric passports, seemingly following US rules.

Leaving aside my thoughts on how stupid this is, is it possible that smiling faces are harder to recognise with biometric methods? Can anyone shed a light on this?

If that should be the case, you can soon tell the terrorists by their smile :)
