I think the tripod ban is reasonable. . .

In a high foot traffic area, people unaware and intent on their own business may well trip on the legs. I've seen it happen in low traffic areas and have no doubt it can happen in a high traffic area.

A tripod does block the flow of traffic in the sense that people have to navigate around it. I suspect there are times when that can create a real bottleneck. I doubt such a rule would be vigorously enforced during low traffic times, but having it available as a tool to increase traffic thruput would be useful.
