Since the officer has initiated a traffic stop, refusing to display/surrender a driving license isn't really an option, at least to me.
On the other hand, I can't see anything wrong with encouraging the officer to write whatever citation he intends to write; and if he doesn't intend to write a citation, why have I been detained?
OT, the civil suit proceeds apace (the insurance company for Plaza Security made a monetary offer of $(redacted but I really wish I had a dollar for every Km between Paris, France and Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan) to have one individual dropped from the suit. One condition was that the details not be shared lest it incur a $100 penalty.
Currently we're waiting for the transcription of Officer's Bell and Dantzler's depositions.
