Bar ends on carbon bars

Does anyone know of any carbon flat mountain bars that are suitable for bar ends? I ride with Ergon GX3 grips with integrated bar ends. I want to upgrade to a carbon bar but I'm not sure of the restrictions of clamping down on the tips of the bar or if there are other factors I need to consider.

I've read some stuff from Jeff Kerkove (local Ergon rep) & he said Ergon doesn't say their grips are OK for carbon (legalities), but it is done. To play if safer, I might throw in a set of bar end plugs.
