Shooting against the sun causing fire...

"When shooting against the sun, keep the sun completely out of the angle of view. Otherwise, solar rays may be concentrated at a focal point inside the camera, causing smoke or a fire. Keeping the sun slightly out of the angle of view may also cause smoke or a fire".

From my new lens manual. Turns at least manuals from Sony (for all lenses?) contain this.

Is there some rationale in this or should I keep ignoring stuff like this?
