I have a pristine pink tag with me at all times. I pull it out and hold it in my hand as my BP is scanned. No one ever says a thing. My rollaboard fits into the overhead bin of most RJs. No need for the seat in front of me. I do this because of the number of times I was told it wouldn't fit and I had to show how easily it fit with no forcing of the bin door. I don't criticize the GA's for prompting me to tag my carry-on. Many rolling bags do not fit.

I want to win the war, not the battle. I would never brandish my status in the way the OP described.
