I've had some upside down in ceiling cans, and in recessed  
completely-enclosed  suspended-ceiling   fixtures with no problems.  These are 
15 and 25 watt (actual) CFLs.   A couple of 15W generic indoor-type CFLs have 
now survived two Michigan winters outdoors in downward-pointing shades intended 
for PAR floods at the head of my mother's exposed car port.

But then, I've had a couple blow in just a couple of months in a benevolent 
indoor setting mounted upright......
