I don't actually know the answer, Sophie, but personally I'd be reluctant to try. On the other hand, my specially bought lights that came with a small studio setup both start smelling quite strongly once they've been on for just a few minutes and I presume that they were designed to take the higher-powered bulbs!! There'd be no chance of leaving them on accidentally for any longer than it takes to take some photos.
Those bulbs you've linked to look wonderful - I had a terrible time replacing one of mine when it went. And now I need to find some space to set them up again...
I think I'd try asking on the customer support button or the Talk to Us one at the top of the page.
I've since talked with one of my co-workers who's really into photography and basically, he said my camera sucks, and that better lights won't help it. He suggested that I get a better camera, one with white balance and one where I can control how long the shutter stays open (so it would let in more light). And he suggested a tripod (so I could let the shutter stay open but not have camera shake). *SIGH*
