EVAP move really necessary due to heat?

So I recently installed a MBRP off road exhaust on my 2012 2Dr. I keep reading about people either putting a heat shield on the Evap or relocating it. Is this really necessary because of heat. I not asking for off-roading purposes because I know everyone recommends relocating due to hitting the evap. Are there any real world experience's with someone having a Evap melt. Before the exhaust install, the stock resonator was located right next to the evap, just as the new exhaust is. So My question is, if the stock is right there, what is the problem with my new exhaust being next to it also?

My Dynomax is right next to my evap on my 2010 2dr. I haven't had any issue with the heat from it. I do have a skid in the evap. But it is open in the space between it and the muffler.

Cool, I just read some others post about this heat issue, it didn't make any sense to me because why would they design a product that has a heat issue and not list it.
