    Couldn't you just say "My iPhone was stolen"? How can they enforce this?

    They probably make you file a police report with the serial number listed as stolen.

    Anyone who has that connected to their plan might actually get caught, simply because the serial number is on a blacklist and cannot be changed.

    You'd obviously need proof it was stolen (police report).

    I'm pretty sure your serial/IMEI number will be blacklisted with AT&T and anyone that tries to activate it will fail. They will also report it to the police.
