In 2005, TSA carefully looked over my gear even when flying  
domestically (like LA to SF). 2006, sometimes, sometimes not. In 2007  
they never even asked for a peek inside my computer/audio case, which  
had hard drives, headphones, mics, and batteries...

What will this mean for us in the real world? Obnoxious and arbitrary  
it appears.

Looking forward to feedback from the first person flying with SD  
decks or cameras with these batteries...

Thankfully, they've taken action by forbidding them beginning in 2008.

Lithium Metal Battery, Spare or Installed (over 2 grams lithium):
In checked bag? Forbidden
Carry-on? Forbidden"

Um, my 6600mAh Sony NPF-970 L-series batteries for my SD722 weight 350

How much of that is lithium? I have no idea. Neither will the TSA
