I don't think it would warp it.

I use a thin piece of acrylic under a similar quad pin CFL (the piece of acrylic is about 2 inches away from the bulb itself), and it has been OK so far. Granted, my light bulb is only 18W, but I don't imagine the extra heat from the 27W fixture would be too much of a problem.
