There is no "magic bullet" that keeps the temperature constant with zero airflow in a normal design. Yes, I'm old enough to remember oil cooled computers. Still no constant temperature and you have turbulence.
I agree that there is no "silver bullet", but my point was that
sometimes you kill one property when you apply a solution to another
problem. I am very well aware of heating problems and cooling my
components, as this is part of my real world. But rather than isolating
the full box, I'm talking about the TCXO or OCXO. Just putting a small
wind-shield over it changes things a lot at times.
