Interesting. So, basically I don't have to let my engine get up to 100C where it starts to "equalize" a bit to be kind to it? Driving hard can be done from 70C without any negative effects to the engine, even though the oil hasn't "fully warmed up"?

So when is the engine best protected? At 100C - 110C where the oil cooler tries to keep temps? Or anywhere from 70 - 110C?
