Why have this delay? Who gains what from it?
I say remove it.
I know many people will say the change could distract PVE, but it only takes like 2 seconds to identiy. It is just a waste of 10 seconds or so.
Anet, please remove this or explain why it is there.

Remove Identification Delay, "You Have Fought To Recently To Do That"

I hate that too. But i can understand why it's there. So people don't get distracted when other people in a group are still fighting and such. Even though its a pain it kind of makes sense. Just wait then ID.

Well, I'm pretty sure there used to be a major crash bug that happened sometimes when people were identifying things during combat between launch and this change. I don't remember if it was stated as such or not, but I seem to recall that this change just happened to also prevent the crash from happening. I have no idea if that's the only reason, and if it is I have no idea how hard it would be to "really" fix the crash bug, but I hope that sheds a little light as to one reason it might be the way it is.

At release, it wasn't present. Then it was added, then broken, then put back.
What's even sadder is that it doesn't even work right if the goal is to prevent people from identifying when they should be fighting -- if they just stand there without taking aggressive action it counts as not fighting even if their allies right next to them are killing things or they're being attacked. That means monks that don't wand can completely avoid the timer, and it encourages other classes to stop fighting earlier to reset their timers and identify items.
Just remove it, we can leave teams/kick people if they idle too much taking care of identification mid-combat.
