It's true. While the plural of anecdote isn't data, I've done it on three vehicles with stock with stock wiring harnesses so far, including a MK3 VW which has a notorious weak point in the headlight switch. No problems, passed several visual inspections to date.
As others have said, a relay harness would make it rock solid, and allow full voltage to the bulbs to get the most out of them.
