RE: If you had taken the time

Who cares if they are not self healing if the current paths in the faults are such high resistance that there is no danger of fire? For example: if a momentary arc is established during some transient and the chemical result of the plasma and the ceramic, air, etc is a high resistance substance that passes little to no current, and the arc nearly immediately self extinguishes, OR if through rigorous testing it could be established the construction is such that it can be guaranteed the risk of dielectric failure when used per rating approaches zero, what is the danger there?

Let's take another angle...UL can be sued. Do you really think Kemet or UL would survive in america selling UL approved capacitors that burned down houses protected by american insurance companies with all their lawyers in this sue happy place?

Kemet not enthusiastic about their use? Where do you get that idea?

"Larger caps sound better IMO and other's opinions"

So now you are saying you've tried every conceivable environment with every conceivable configuration of electronics then? cause that is what it would take in order to form such a broad ranging, blanket opinion. In case you didn't notice, this task would be all but impossible to accomplish for mortal man and that is why I and others would call BS on such statements.
