You need to put two and two together. The TSA has now said we can search for WEI and "identification media" without defining what that is. We've all seen that the TSA stretches every rule and twist of language possible (for example, refusing to let them molest your daughter, taking off your clothes in protest, being upset, etc. all meets the TSA's view of "interference with checkpoint screening"), and it really doesn't take a big stretch to conclude that the TSA will now see itself justified searching anything that "may" identify you.
