Closet lighting

Local code does not allow incandescent light fixtures in a closet. I believe that is also true of the NEC. Does this apply to recessed lighting or can I use incandescent bulbs in recessed cans. Currently I have a couple of really ugly, flickering flourescents that I want to replace.

The reason for the prohibition is to keep a potentially broken bulb, and hot filament from landing on clothing and setting them on fire. If you use the can light, use a shower light which has an incorporated lens to satisfy the code.

Does the requirement to use a lens type trim plate apply to flourescent bulbs in a recessed fixture?
