QR Codes For Grave Markers

In the SciFi movie Serenity there is a rather touching scene where some grave markers are seen, each sporting a moving hologram of the deceased in happier times. This isn't that, but the concept is similar - by etching a QR code onto a grave marker (one of those rectangular bar codes you see everywhere), someone paying their respects can scan the code and open a link to (for example) a website showing the deceased. At first blush, it may sound a little cheesy or even disrespectful, but you can imagine how a tastefully done (or even funny) retrospective on a website might be moving or insightful experience to a visitor.
