Cell Codes

There was another small mystery from the second episode, but just in case you haven't seen the episode I have hidden the details in the spoiler tag below.

On the door of Jack Sylvane's cell in new Alcatraz there was a QR Code (2D barcode).

It seemed unecessary as why not just leave the prisoner number on the cell for identification ? What extra info would the 2D barcode hold that would require its presence ?

People have tried to read the code from the episode, but as yet no one has got a clear enough image to be able to do so. Maybe the show runners have plans for these in the future, or maybe they are just there as part of the cell design.
