I've seen plenty of cracked hub shells from drive efforts; however, even looking at the cheapest 6-bolt hubs being abused way beyond their intended market I have yet to see a catastrophic failure of a rotor mount. I've seen rotor bolts so rusted that the heads snapped with a light twist of the wrist on a T-25 but didn't fail during riding. I've seen DH bikes roll in with half their rotor bolts missing and their rotors fully floating on the remaining bolts after a weekend at Whistler without having ever seen a rotor fully separate from the system or a bolt fail.  It's simply not an issue.
