How hot should we run XHP emitters?

It seems like the old default was 70c.

Cree says 105c do the light manufactures know this when they are figuring thermal management systems?
Do we exploit this design spec?

I thought you could run them until the LED slid off the MCPCB just like mwfire does.

Is it just me or is this not an important change
