It actually goes even further, as long as the cork is in someone else's forehead.

I'm thinking that the Belgian bottles would be a very good option for any mead that has a risk of carbonating... Put some nice cages over the cork (make sure you leave enough outside the bottle neck) and you'll be safe.
