For my next wedding shoot, I will buy a Metz mecablitz 58 AF-2. Half the price of the Sony, nice feature set and probably no overheating (at least from what I read).

from Metz 58 AF-2 user manual;

" When taking a series of flash shots at full light output and with the rapid
recycling times possible with NiMH battery operation, make sure to wait for
at least 10 minutes after 15 flashes. Otherwise, the flash unit will be overlo-
aded."

About the same what Sony says in their manual. But the point is: the Metz doesn't just shut down, from what I read in these forums and elsewhere. I don't mind a warning, like a blinking icon or a red LED, but it should be up to me to decide whether I want to take one or two more shots (or completely waste the thing...).
