New in Article 406 in the 2014 NEC

"Receptacles in Countertops and Similar Work Surfaces.

Receptacles, unless listed as receptacle assemblies for countertop applications, shall not be installed in a face-up position in countertops or similar work surfaces. Where receptacle assemblies for countertop applications are required to provide ground-fault circuit-interrupter protection for personnel in accordance with 210.8, such assemblies shall be permitted to be listed as GFCI receptacle assemblies for countertop applications."

PS: I just got a copy of the new 2014 NEC handbook as a PDF file; works great searching and copy are allowed.:thumbup:

The bottom of a cabinet is not a work surface.

As the install may be pre-406, perhaps the answer is rating/listing of the raised 4 sq cvr being installed in the position it is....i.e.- a floor rated cover would be required.......~CS~
