Is runway condition a factor when determining the maximum allowable X-wind for takeoff or landing? If so, are there both manufacturers' and operators' limitations?

Fedex limitation on MD-11/MD-10 is max x-wind for t/o or ldg with braking action poor or the equivalent is 10kts.

Quoting Redcordes (Thread starter):

To both answers, yes, sort of. You can imagine that on slippery runways, it's harder to maintain directional control when you have the same crosswind as on a dry runway. The manufacturer will provide maximum demonstrated crosswind figures for the aircraft under all kinds of conditions, but this is not a manufacturer limitation. However, these figures are usually used by the operator as limitations, sometimes the operator will use stricter limitations than the recommended figures.
