Has anyone had experience with MIL-PRF-83282 or MIL-PRF-87257 with improved fire resistant composition?

MIL-PRF-5606A has a flash point of 343°C (649°F). I understand this is 2x the Flash point of the standard red stuff. So if the Nylaflow line pops off and sprays brake fluid on your rotor you may avoid a fire with the good stuff.
This is way more critical for you nose draggers than for us tail draggers. I still have 30 year old nylaflow with the standard red fluid. I've been meaning to purge that fluid because I have a can of the Mil stuff on the shelf. One day...
