maching 6.4 heads yes or no?

wondering if the 6.4 head should be machined (i know ford says a no no for this) but it seams to work for the 6.0 liter, i know valves seats can be receded back into the head but what about the glowplu and the injector tip can they become in contact with the pistons? because they technicaly will sint lower in the combustion chaimber?

I got my heads machined when doing studs and did not do the valve seats or worry about anything else and everything has worked out great. One head was slightly out of spec and the other was just under spec so i got them machined as to not take a risk. If not getting them machined at least get them checked for cracks and if they warped.
