I have read a few UOA's where SSO was trashed long before it ever got close to that 35k number.
I mean so many factors come into play that, well to be perfectly frank, I just will not run my oil that long even if Amsoil says I can.
I mentioned that a few pages back, it got skipped over. Glad you mentioned it again.
The oil is good, it is not perfect. If you take Amsoil's recommendations at face value, you are taking a chance. If you believe you have Amsoil in your corner, and you believe in 38 years they never had an oil related problem, again you are taking a chance. People should know this who use their extended drain oils, unfortunately their reps may not tell them the whole story. In a nut shell that is a major point in this discussion.
I'd follow the OM with a good quality oil, and filter, and be safe, and happy.
