same electrickery these days in spite of the EU(rinal) woth their stupid cable colours and phantom 230V.

Neither of those were anything to do with the EU, but I take your point.

So I can do it even though the instructions say "This appliance must be connected directly to the mains using an omnipolar circuit breaker with a minimum opening of 3mm between contacts"

Indeed, the instructions are guidance not law.
 
ovens and hobs up to a total rating of 15kW have been fine for the last 60 + years with both on a 32A MCB (6.0mm cable, ref. method withstanding). same loads, same electrickery these days in spite of the EU(rinal) woth their stupid cable colours and phantom 230V. why should it change?
Is this your personal rule of thumb? Based on I guess a circa 50% diversity factor for the 6mm/B32 combo?
