Wholeheartedly agree, a couple of months ago I considered posting something
very similar, both for utility reasons and in hopes that it would be an
optimization target (being a standard operation).

I find the name `identity` unilluminating, though, partially because it's
not quite the same meaning as the usual "identity" function (`function
identity(x) { return x; }`), though it's close. `assemble`?
