Oil does not last that long unless you have some crazy fill spec....like 10 qts.

First, I have a 2008 with 80k on it, and I use Mobil-1 5w30 and change it at 5k.
A quality synthetic such as Mobil-1 or Amsoil will last 10k, no problem, even without some "crazy fill specs". I've been around the block, and I've seen a shitload of used oil analysis reports. Quality synthetic is good to 10k.
Beyond 10k, the additive package becomes a concern, and I would not consider it without an added bypass filtration system, AND a filter change at 10k.
With the filter change, the additive package is replenished and will hold for another 10k.
Finally, on the 5k/10k interval, Toyota has published some conflicting information, but the factory recommended interval for the 2012 and later 2.7 with 0w20 synthetic is in fact 10,000 miles. Some of the earlier publications indicated 5k.
