I read many contradictory advices re: where to string crosses from - top or bottom?

As an example, official Wilson's stringing instructions for my racquet differ for one-pice strining vs two-piece stringing job:

Wilson BLX Pro Open

String Pattern
16 Mains x 19 Crosses
String Length
One 35' (10.7 m) length (ss: 9'5") or 19' (5.8 m) mains
and 16' (4.9 m) crosses. Start mains at throat.
Mains skip 8T and 8H. Tie off mains at 6T.
If one-piece stringing: Start Xs at bottom at 8T. Tie off Xs at 5H.
If two-piece stringing: Start Xs at top at 8H. Tie off Xs at 5H & 11T.
Recommended String Tension

I believe your concerns are valid mostly in case of extreme tensions, closer to the higher end of recommended range, or even exceeding it?
