This is another example of Nvidia's marketing efforts. If they designed a card too hot for the ATX standards, the first thing they could do to avoid bad publicity is to start certifying components that will put their product in a positive spotlight, such as working with Thermaltake to certify a case for their product.
Bottom line from my perspective, if Nvidia produced a card that is way too hot for existing cases, they boned themselves! BUT come on, a good case should be able to handle Fermi's heat, but Nvidia just won't stop hyping their products above and beyond reasonable expectations.
