There's another issue as well. If a guest is scalded when using your
shower, and sues you, the insurance company will investigate to see if
the valve was ever replaced. If it was replaced after the requirement
for the scald-proof valves then they will want to know who installed the
valve. If it was a licensed plumber then they'll go after them. If it
was the homeowner it gets dicey. The homeowner violated the code by
installing a non-compliant valve so the insurance company could refuse
to pay.

That seems accurate. If there's any common knowledge about insurance
companies it's that they do not want to pay. They will put forth the time
and manpower to avoid paying a claim if possible. So it just seems more
logical to avoid all this mess and headache and just have the valve

More nonsense. If your insurance company has that reputation, get
another. NOW.
