It's been proven that hidden volumes are detectable and "fairly" easy to find to those that know what they are looking for.


Not true. You can show that a hidden volume is possible, and might even show that it is likely to exist, but there is no way to prove BRD that it *does* exist.

But that's beside the point - in the scenario where a goon at a border post demands your password, and you give him a password that unlocks the computer showing a perfectly ordinary & popular OS containing innocuous data, the goon is unlikely to start doing a raw sector analysis of the HDD in order to see whether a hidden volume might exist.
