My main question is why that might be true. My starting point is mainly that while I hear such arguments I rarely see an explanation of the science behind it.

In the event i'm not understanding you correctly i'm sorry. How does any one know what chip clocks to till you try? After all no two chips are exactly the same. if for any reason a chip isn't stable at 3.0 the OEM will bin it to a lower clocked bin like 2.7. he was just saying that while it may be stable it has to also meet a temperature requirement too which apparently is related to leakage.
