Here I though my best reason for still using my PS/2 keyboard was "Since I know where 1 end of the cord is, I can always find the other end."

Now.  The question is, can they use the same type of system, to see what my wireless mounse is pointing at?  That would be some technology.   :D

What about oldschool keyboards such as my Model M? Think that would leak?

No problem - take an ordinary $25 keyboard, mate it with a $3 shielded USB cable, and sell it for $100.

This isn't exactly new stuff.  There's multiple ways of monitoring what's going on.   From the old Tempest days to audio analysis of keyboard sounds while typing.
