Does this ID, in fact, define an API which is sufficient to support realistic, interoperable code across a significant range of libraries and platforms? Is there a unique way to reference the authentication credential on my guaranteed-unique government-issued smart card regardless of which reader on which platform it’s plugged into?

Since I did not involve myself in the process, I do not know if those goals were excluded for some legitimate reason, but the discussion preceding makes it sound like they were not met.
