I've never had any difficulty disregarding those instructions. Just don't leave the lights on for extended periods. Even better, if they're dimmable, keep them at a lower level most of the time and bring then to full brightness as needed.

I have to agree here, I've never had an issue with recessed lighting either... I have my kitchen lights recessed, but I have them on an occupancy sensor light switch (so they turn on when someone enters the room and off 5 minutes after they leave).

I'm about to swap most of my other light bulbs out for smart bulbs and they will all be recessed lights as well.
