So when you buy a season ticket you'll have extra options like 
"associate this with my Paywave card", as well as "load this onto my 
ITSO", "load this onto my Oyster", and "print it on a bit of dead tree".

The only extension I've seen any mention of is the "load this onto my 
ITSO", which is apparently going to work [in London] late in 2013 at the 
same time as the Paywave card is acceptable on all modes.


And getting back to my original question, that I still feel I need an 
answer to, how does a ticket inspector do his job in a regime of 
ticketless travel?

Speculation, or do you know this as a fact?
