I'm not an expert on the chemistry side of things, but my gut reaction is that 800 sounds excessive for seasoning. I think there is some argument out there for whether you need to exceed the smoke point or not, but I don't think you need to exceed it by that much. 800 is approaching SCO temps, if I recall correctly.
