If I ever have to reseason a cast iron pan, it will be stripped in the oven first.
Same as mine. I've stripped off seasoning on two CI skillets by leaving them in the oven during self-cleaning. Once it was on purpose.

I leave my pizza stone in the oven during the self-cleaning cycle to clean it. Works great. I would see no problem with leaving a skillet on the floor of the oven.

Update: Just for grins, I sprayed the pan with Simple Green, put it in a plastic bag, and let it sit for 2 days. The Simple Green removed the thinnest seasoning, and a few minutes with a steel wool scouring pad removed some more. There is still some seasoning around the perimeter of the pan, but it's a lot thinner than it was. I'm going to give it another Simple Green / steel wool treatment and see what I end up with. I doubt that all of it will be removed, but if I can remove enough so that reseasoning will result in a smooth surface, I think I will be good.

I'm surprised, I thought for sure you'd have married La Petite Filet.

I reseason my pan, once in a great while, with elbow grease, steel wool, hot soapy water, more steel wool, more soapy water, dry it. Then oil it down inside and out and bake it.
