My only evidence is going in the other direction and is anecdotal. A
friend and I drove down to New England and picked up some NeXT stuff.
At the entry into Canada the customs guy got sticky until we found a
fab date on one of the things; it was old enough he basically just
waved us through.
The only other incident was bringing some laptops back from my trip to
Norway; the customs guy didn't seem to care beyond hearing that the
University was throwing them out because they were too old, and a very
rough off-the-cuff valuation.
