Is it true that as long as the engine is not overheated, it is completely safe to remove the radiator cap?

It is not enough for the engine not to be overheated. The system should have cooled completely before you even attempt to remove the radiator cap, and even then, you should be very careful as there may be tremendous pressure and damaging steam and fluids.
