I had a similar experience when I lived in Germany and took mine in for service. The gal behind the desk says (in German accented English) that I had exceeded the recommended speed and rpm a number of times. I smiled and was like "I couldn't help myself!". She laughed and said "yaaa dis happens all da time. It is no problem"

So...I'm sure the break in guidelines have merit, but at least in Germany, they didn't seem to get too upset over not strictly following it.
