The Motorcraft High Temperature Anti-seize Lubricant (XL-2) states "...and guards against rust and corrosion caused by chemicals and weathering." The Permatex Nickel Anti-seize states something similar " Salt, corrosion and moisture resistant."
Just to put that back into context...

So there's a distinction to be made between "Prevents" and "guards". Likewise: I think Permatex's choice to use the word "resistant" is worth considering. I choose to read them in the context they are presented: at VERY HIGH temperatures, and with regard to typical corrosion of bare metal AT those temperatures. You may choose a different interpretation, and that's OK with me.
My bottom line is: there's a reason Ford recommends dielectric for brakes, and not anti-seize.
