Something to keep in mind is to not mix up the terminology. Deck height is not the same as piston to head clearance. What you are measuring and talking about here is piston to head clearance. The sources I've read say to have a minimum of .035 inches of piston to head height. There is no maximum spec. I think all this talk about squish area and flame propogation is overly hyped. I would worry about meeting the minimum and getting the compression ratio you want and not lose any sleep over having too much squish area.
