Default Brushless esc, thermal protection and failures

Is it misguided to rely on a brushless esc's built in thermal protection, instead of cautiously testing motor and pinion combinations? I'd never think to jamb wood into my table saw until the motor's thermal cutoff kicked in, to determine the limits of the saw. Then reset it, and repeat the process. Could this account for the high rate of complaints about blown brushless esc?
