As you may or may not have noticed, the bearers of diplomatic immunity
in most countries do not get epassports "for security reasons".

Yes, but do the folks at the border know this? ;)  A false diplomatic
ePassport might get one out of a foreign country before it is
discovered it is a fake - and I'd rather spend time in an American
jail for a false diplomatic passport than in just about any other
country for anything else!
