I read an article about OBD III a while ago, so it is kind of sketchy but
here goes.
I believe once OBD III is implemented, you will be able to do NOTHING to you
motor to improve performance. This means not even a K&N Air Filter, a more
powerful coil, etc. I think this is very unfortunate, considering that many
of the things we can do to our vehicles to improve performance, can actually
improve emissions and gas mileage. I am not sure about transmitting
emmisions info to roadside receivers, but I believe it will allow
capabilities of sending drive speeds to receivers. I can't recall if this
was just a possibility, or if this was going to be done. That's why, I will
probably never purchace a new vehicle. Photo Radar is bad enough, but
something like that would be really terrible.

I'm hearing some crazy stories about OBD-III (transmitting emmisions info to
roadside receivers, recording drive speeds to give police proof of
infractions, etc.)

Where can you find the truth about all this?
