Article 409 is discussed in the "Report of Committee." It should be noted that there were many objections, citing this as either material that was already covered in product standards, or that would allow substandard equipment to be used.
I am wary of this, as I do not consider either the code, or the NFPA, appropriate bodies for addressing this subject. This get too much into design, process, and the appliance for me to be comfortable looking at the NEC as a primary source.
