no its still a safe system, i'd be 80% sure those console ID's gain access through a whitelist and the keys are random (well as random as it gets no relationship from one key to the next). which means as long as you don't give out your key you're safe and PSN is safe. there's no brute forcing it or generating them if they're random.
what is it exactly their machines look for when making a ban for cfw/circumvention devices running on the ps3? why not ban me for using a 3rd party peripheral? + i read to hide homebrew emus or games to change the names of the folders where they are installed?? will that hold any weight?
yeah but you'd have to get their console id, which you can only get by either running homebrew or sniffing the packets on their local network (after setting their PS3 to send its traffic to you). Mind you I'd imagine half the guys doing repairs on PS3's have probably already started collecting keys.
They'll not ban you for 3rd party peripheral, its just in there because they removed aload of them a few updates ago, think it was 3.50 people just tend to over react when they read the terms have changed.
