Maybe it was a 123 thing only ?
I've heard claims that different wattage bulbs could damage the cruise control. I don't really see how that could happen, since the power for the brake lights doesn't flow through the cruise control at all. I suspect someone noticed that a lot of cars have non-stock brake lights, and a lot of cars have broken cruise controls, and drew a conclusion from that.
