Problem Solvers Center Lock Adaptor

Long story short, I have a budget wheelset with Shimano center lock disc hubs and I have standard IS 6 bolt Hayes discs that I want to run. I bought the problem solvers adaptors, and I noticed today when they arrived that they say 165mm rotor max size. Anybody know why this is? I was planning on running a 203mm in the front, but this has me second guessing that. What do you guys think?

It is probably because the do not want to be liable for what extra stresses a larger rotor may put on the adapter. Adapters, no matter how good (and PS stuff is good), are always a weak link.
