If it's designed to be in a densely-packed rack with lots of other things with possibly restricted airflow, it's a genuine concern.  Just remember, this is high-TEMP, not high-CURRENT; it's not a 20-amp plug, it's just designed to plug into things that potentially get quite warm (such as coffeepots/tea kettles/densely-racked computer equipment).
