I agree totally, that it is a line that should be kept away from
But then how do you "prove" to someone that their system isn't as secure
as they "feel"/assume it is?
Tell them what you an do and ask their permission to proceed. Often people who are overly confident in the security of their systems are just as interested in proving you wrong. Once they give you permission, as long as you stay within the scope agreed upon, I would think it would be hard to call it trespassing. I generally try to get such permission in written form (at least email).

IANAL though.
