In this case, it's not the technology that's flawed, but the "racers" that are willfully and intentionally abusing it.
As for heating, I'm now a fan of making the rule no more than 10F over the ambient temperature. I used to be in favor of heating to help LiPo be on par with NiMH, but in hindsight, It's really not that big of a deal, and an unnecessary complication and hazard.
