I agree that on cheap hardware this might be needed, however, I

Speaking as someone who's done electronics servicing for over 20 years,
I can't say that I concur with that. Erroneous resumptions get made
that enough heat dissipation has been accounted for, or cooling is
supplied to cope with ambient temperatures that are lower than actually
present, or that the owner will have superseded the equipment before it
has cooked itself...

George Orwell's '1984' was supposed to be a warning against tyranny, not
a set of instructions for supposedly democratic governments.
