Of course, if your passport, etc. are attached to you (e.g. in your pockets), then you are less likely to lose it after an evacuation. The people upthread who have mentioned needing difficult-to-replace essential medication may want to ensure that the medication is attached to them so that if an evacuation is needed, they will not have to cause delays looking for it or the carry-on bag that it is in.
