16. Wires could easily trail to a concealed explosive on her person.

As to stupid bombers who are inept/crazy enough to reveal themselves and are bound to be caught, they exist. Remember the shoe bomber? A circuit board with a battery attached could be a detonator. When that equipment is secured with scotch tape to someone's person it's absolutely grounds for detaining and searching that person at an airport.

As for the rest, an airport is not the same as a career day gathering of techies. In one situation, a circuit board strapped to somebody is no big deal. In the other, it -will- be seen as a big deal, and rightly so. But let's see if you're right. I'll put up a series of circuit board images, some detonators, some not--do you think you can identify the detonators correctly?
