Do you have and know how to use an oscilloscope?

From what I can see, you did a nice job non-destructively separating the boards which is often the deal-breaker for guys attempting to mess with the PS2 5V board set.  But do you have a method to non-destructively remove the ~50 to ~100 pin surface-mounted digital IC chips of the complexity as found on the PCB?  When my eyesight was better, I used Chip-Quik for this purpose.

Getting the boards apart is a major accomplishment, that allows you to get to many of the components that are otherwise out of reach.  For removing smaller chips, I've turned to my hot air tool, but the larger ones I'd have to invest in the nozzles specific to the chip, and I just don't have the call to do it enough to spent that money.

I think you will be held criminally liable when the head bashing starts trying to salvage 5V you provided.  G

You're probably right George, I'm calling my lawyer now to prepare my defense!
