So what no one wants to try there luck with applying liquid gallium as a thermal compound on die, and for the heatsink?

Gallium attacks most other metals by diffusing into their metal lattice. Gallium, for example, diffuses into the grain boundaries of aluminium-zinc alloys or steel, making them very brittle. Gallium easily alloys with many metals, and is used in small quantities as a plutonium-gallium alloy in the plutonium cores of nuclear bombs, to help stabilize the plutonium crystal structure

Pits would require huge diamond chunks and it doesn't have that. That concept doesn't even pass the smell test.
Carbon staining is the worst thing it does.
I'd also note that every Clevo reseller uses/offers it.
That's a huge number of systems.
