Cooking Turkey to 140 or 150 degrees

Judy Rodgers, of our favorite Zuni Roast Chicken, advocates cooking turkey to 150F before resting. (She cooks it to 140 herself, final resting temperature 157F). Also Rick Bayless suggests cooking turkey to 145 or 150F, in Rick Bayless's Mexican Kitchen p.280, and then allowing it to rest. Elsewhere I've read food is supposed to be safe after being held 10 minutes at 140F.

Anybody else with a good thermometer cook their turkey this way?
