I'm not sure where you're getting this information. Intuition makes liners for Full TIlt, Dalbello and Scarpa. There is a Head boot coming out next year that appears to also have an Intuition liner and they may also make liners for other companies as well. With the exception of the kid's boot, all Full Tilt boots come with an Intuition liner and they all have Intuition labels on them. I have a pair of Classics and the liners are Intuition liners. If you read what Intuition says on their website, they say the liners will mold to your feet just by wearing them, but heating is quicker and more effective. The Dreamliner is not supposed to be heated.

From the full tilt web site I linked to. I haven't seen this particular boot and liner, but the description is not that of an aftermarket Intuition heat moldable liner like the Powerwrap. Intuition makes liners for various companies as you note--these liners are made to the various companies' specs and have an Intuition label on them, although they are different than the aftermarket Intuitions. I believe some models may use standard Intuitions, but the description of the Booter liner--which the site labels as a Quick-Fit, has a layer of open cell foam, among other things, which I'm pretty sure Intuition doesn't use in its heat moldable liners. While it may be possible to  mold a Powerwrap or similar liner by wearing it, based on my fitting experience the process would be extremely painful if the boot and liner are the right size. One important step in the heating molding process is the use of a toe cap to make room for the toes. I don't see how you could get enough room for your toes without using the cap with a heat moldable Intuition.

So some Intuitions "must" be heat molded and some "can" be heat molded.  Well I guess that makes sense but I would leave it to my sales guy to tell me which is which, I hope they know.

 

Still the most comfy boot and liner I have had.  But I don't ski high flex like I said before usually 90.  For me, I'll take comfy, warm toes, and no pain any day.  But I think much of my boot fitting experience is outdated when boot mods were a big deal and they didn't have heat molding yet.  Heck I even got on shaped skis late, but was a convert same day I tried them.
