I agree on both counts.

The article (which I've now read) talks about agents taking care when talking to pax about these issues, even in the context of checking bags. So maybe this is more pre-travel when someone asks to short-check?

Because once travel is completed, as you said, a computer can trivially pick these things up.

But if they're not going to stop the passenger from flying, I don't know why they'd want the agents involved at all.
