I am still a bit surprised for security reasons. Would really the agent trust some printed material that can be easily faked, and send you bag on an international flight without checking that you are a pax on that flight? I know that bona fide pax could still choose not to board, so airlines have to check transfer bags anyhow. But I would assume that US agents would be over-risk averse rather than over-zealous.
The bag will not be loaded if the pax does not board so it is not a security issue as such. It could potentially create inconvenience and delay but the risk of this happening is so low as to not be worth it.
I suspect that your experience from that minor FL airport would have indeed to do with the agent being unfamiliar with what to do to interline baggage in such a situation but that is not necessarily due to inability to access the eticket per se.
