It would also be suspicious to ask to short check a bag, especially if the passenger then decides to do carry on only when the request is denied....or if someone fails to recheck a bag after exiting customs on a USA international arrival.

Bottom line: If you do this, standard advice has been not to do it too often and now you also should avoid calling attention to it or even having unnecessary contact with agents (which can be a good thing otherwise too).
