The reason that I am saying that it seems bad, is that the ownerinfo widget seems to allow you to make a call, which, as it appears (though i could be wrong) would allow someone to bypass your lock screen if you lost your phone (call the number, then hit the home button?).
If i am wrong please tell me, because that is a great idea! I'm worried about security though.
I remember when I used widget locker + ICE on a version with the ability to call my emergency contact from the widget(I believe for one reason or another this ability was taken off), when I ended the call, it took me to the stock lockscreen.
