As I understand it, you are trying mandate versioned license tags.
Such an approach is inapplicable without a "license tags" register being
actively maintained by an "licence tag administration office".

In other words, to me your proposal is equivalent to mandating cars
carring license tags but allowing car owner to "paint them themselves".

This can't work.
