As far as I know those where explicitly added because of missing support 
for factory overclocked boards to prevent people from accidentally 
turning on DPM on such hardware.

So giving anybody the possibility to override those is probably not a 
good idea. If Alex implements the necessary changes he will surely 
remove those restrictions.
