Surely this has to start with the folks who specified the current
limit? Which components or subsystems aren't certified higher, what
failure mode, what rate?

If the failure is "after 8 months, 1% of systems in this specific
500-meter altitude window will start exploding at random", a test
protocol isn't something we'll be able to invent.
