keep in mind what the cbsa tells you is not a guarantee it will work when your stuff gets inspected. One guy can easily interpret the rules one way, and the guy who actually checks your stuff will see it another way. You could get lucky and they don't see it in your stuff, or they could outright just take it and destroy it.
I futz with V2s, V3s and V6s. I could be wrong... but probably, most likely not, as far as I know.
