No, Sony is not going to do this. This 'UMD passport' solution was only ever on the cards in Japan, where - according to Sony - old PSP games retain their value for much longer, so it's more expensive to buy old games.
Supposedly. SCEE and SCEA have made it clear they have no intention to make this scheme available in other regions.
Has Star Ocean ever been available for download anyway?

Sony had already confirmed a while back it would not be available outside of Japan including the UK and EU.
they said it might not be implemented in america but nothing about the Uk . . . . . . guess that answered my own question haha

It's a shame really because it would have been nice, however I can see where they are coming from with their decision. As mentioned, games in Japan retain their value longer than in the EU and US (somehow) and so the West would be making a loss I suppose by doing such a scheme, especially with second hand games available for penies. That being said, there's a large amount of games still not on the PSN, including old platniums like Ace Combat X (which I think should be up there because, apart from the base commander, is a better game compared to Joint Assault). I don't have many UMD's but I'm happy to have held onto my PSP, infact just yesterday I had to use it to download a game as my Vita had no room
