That's what the conventional wisdom says, yes.

You have to know the limits of each stressed component and work within those limits, no matter the motor/controller/battery technology.

You can kill AC motors just as dead if you abuse them and for much the same reasons (over-current, over-speed), particularly ones with PM rotors.
