When the rule was initiallly put in place to ban power strips and extension chords they were actually enforcing the rule and confiscating them. I'm not sure who that has played out over time, as the negative reaction was pretty strong.

I do know if anyone needs chords for devices, like CPAP machines, they just had to explain the medical need and they were allowed to bring them onboard.

I also believe, rather than bare wires, they were more concerned with extra demands on the wiring, and power necessary to multipule devices.
