Does that mean that a malicious PCIe device can send write TLP
that contain the 'wrong' id (IIRC that is bus:dev:fn) and so
write to areas that it shouldn't access?

For any degree of security the PCIe bridge nearest the target
needs to verify the id as well.
Actually all bridges need to verify the 'bus' part.
Then boards with 'dodgy' bridges can only write to locations
that other dev:fn on the same board can access.
