The reasonableness of TSA thinking something is a replica would be decided per instance and only at a trial/hearing but it will require a higher standard than Stewart's "I know it when I see it"
There's nothing reasonable about confiscating a two-inch sock monkey's gun that has clearly been examined and shown to be a harmless toy, not a sneaky homemade weapon.

There's nothing reasonable about confiscating a brightly-colored plastic 'grabber' toy because someone allegedly might confuse it with a functional weapon.
