I travel almost weekly with 4- 600EX-RTs and a ST E3 RT in a messenger bag, no issues. Batteries out for sure.

Not an issue. TSA (in the states) never hassles me when I travel and I have 2 units + ST E3 RT. All the devices with radios/wi fi etc. that people carry every day they could care less about triggers in a flash unit.
I seriously doubt the TSA would even have a clue what those items were, much less even consider they had radio capabilities.
Besides, they're a bit too busy lately with "security theater", and hassling/groping little girls in wheel chairs.
Oddly enough in the Reno, NV airport one of the guys is a photo buff. He "held" me (I had the time) to chat about what I was up to. Has become a good friend=).
