I had heard of a university (U. of Colorado?) effort to put high temperature cellulase enzymes into plants (the genes also obtained from thermophilic bacteria). One important point not emphasized in the article is that the enzymes would not be active at the temperature at which the plant would grow. They'd only catalyze the reaction after the plants had been harvested and heated.

I'd worry about these enzymes activating under warm but acidic conditions (increasing the glycemic index of the grain and making even "whole grain" products more problematic for blood-sugar control) and the allergenic possibilities of the strange proteins.
