Can't that be covered somehow in the concealed junction box section. To me insulation is a permanent installation and the junction boxes should not be permanently concealed. Try to enforce that with the insulators! If the boxes were to be elevated, how high should they go? About knee(*ouch*) high?

Ryan you have to go into the attic to see them. Seriously I find them (and install them) quite often in renovation work. I have yet to come accross an inspector that will climb into an attic, especially a dirty old one. As for crawling through insulation, it is unfortunately part of our job.
