LED driver design - confusion over failure risk - in parallel @ low currents

I am going round in circles trying to work out if my #Yapolamp is going to kill the 5630 LEDs I'm planning to use in parallel at low currents (relative to rated current). There were several comments which told me my arrangement would lead to LED failure but I'm not sure if the commenters were clear on the currents involved or their transient nature as the voltage peaks from the driver inductor discharge through the LEDs. 

Specific comments.



Please could someone who is confident on this chime in?

@Enrico or  @Ted Yapo would be great, among many others. Thanks
