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?

Like they all say all trucks are different. My X would go over 1250* stock pulling a 5.4k TT up Vail Pass. Had to watch the pyro.

Just my situation, so yes stock oem can go over.
