Noob Q, kick stand issue, real or theory

New guy question: Is the kick stand issue on the Adv R more theory than application? It reminds me of the chatter about the neutral switch issue oin the DR650. Yres if the neutral switch bolt (1/4 20) comes loose it can grenade your engine but it is rare. The mod is mostly peace of mind. Is that the case with the sidestand upfit?
Black Dog cycle works ad talks about it being an issue on both a side strike or "the weight of the rider resting on the sidestand". I would be surprised if another static 200+ pounds could crack an engine case, but not shocked if a ballistic hit like a crash could. Whats the real story Team Orange?
