Beer can be warm if you want. It really doesn't matter. Remember -- these things are pressure tested for 100+ psi. I chill and carb simultaneously all the time.
1. Rack into keg @ room temp
2. Clear headspace.
3. Set to 30psi, come back about 2 days later to find carb'd beer.
Remember, liquids DO hold onto some carbonation at room temperature -- case in point Coca Cola. If you're forcing it into solution, then you're well......FORCING it in. It won't hold as much at room temp, but it certainly won't refuse carbonation. And of course it'll sip CO2 faster as it chills.
