Why would a manufacturer recommend an undersized anchor? It's in their best interests, both financial and reputation-wise to recommend MORE than you really need.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
