The requirement is for a Class 3 wiring method in the wall. Article 411.4, 2002 Ed.

2002 NEC Article 411 Section 411.4 Says you must use the wiring methods of Chapter 3 and CL2 wiring is in Chapter 7. This changes in the '05 a little bit but not completely.

Read the FPN in Art. 725. " The circuits described hereinare charecterized by usage and electrical power limitations that differtiate them from electric light and power circuit;

You are using the wrong Article. Article 411 is Lighting Systems operating at 30 volt or less.

PS did you even consider the voltage drop using wiring that small? Most LV undercabinet lighting uses 10 Ga.
