A very good point. Although a fire is a lesser risk, it also has as bigger impact. "Hotel catches fire due to unauthorized EV charging" would make headlines and have a much bigger impact than a tripped breaker.
As early adopters with powerful tools (current limiters going above usual specs), we have a responsibility to be good stewards and not bring upon ourselves negative attention (fire, tripped breaker, etc) until EV charging is commonplace and accepted.
