A problem with non-transferrable NFTs

I just claimed an “Ethereum Since 2017” badge. But I did so with a wallet that I haven’t used in years — it’s basically been deprecated in favor of other wallet addresses that I use on a day-to-day basis. So what use is a verifiable credential or other utility NFT if it’s stuck in a wallet that I no longer use? That’s akin to having a debit card in a ratty old wallet in the bottom of my nightstand drawer and not being able to transfer that debit card to the newer wallet I use every day so I can continue to use the card for in-person purchases.
