Dumb question..maybe. Can you exceed EGT's towing stock?

While discussing pro's and con's of mods with a friend the subject of EGT's came up. When towing, I am sure that you can exceed your threshold of EGT's easily with a stock set up. Buddy wasn't so sure, stating why don't diesels come stock with a pyro then? Does the truck recognize temps and adjust? Suppose you wouldn't know until it was too late.
I think that within a few years one of the big three will come out with a pyrometer gauge. What do you guys think?

On my early 99, when I still had the XLE8 pcm, stock 'cept for at the time a Amsoil filter and gutted cat and Walker BTM...towing our 27' TT which was roughly 7k...I hit 1200-1250 numerous times and had to back out of it.
