I have a theory also that lowering the boom helps in overpowered conditions not just because of a lower body position and easier mast foot pressure, but also because with a lower boom there is more of the mast above the boom clamp (which is a pivot point) and therefore the mast can more easily bend off and exhaust gusts as the sail creates greater leverage over the pivot point.
I got a couple of photos of my overpowered session and my mast is definitely bending nicely.
